We feel a great admiration for people who keep alive the art of crafting tools by hand. Tools like these beautiful Kitchen Knives By Chelsea Miller ($200.00+), truly one-of-a-kind pieces made “with the intention to bring people closer to each other and their food.”
Miller, a talented young lady who discovered her passion in knife making, builds these original kitchen pieces in a studio in Brooklyn, NY. For the blades she uses old horse files that she grinds down, keeping some of the rasps intact, to create a textured finish that is not only awesome-looking but is also great for grating cheese or tenderizing meat. Attached to the high carbon tool steel blades are handles crafted from various repurposed woods, including spalted maple, walnut, and apple. The elegant knives are available in various styles of chef, boning, and cheese, and if you want one, be sure to order in advance.
