I'm on a journey of dedication to the craft and constant learning.

Brechfa Knives Junior

BK Junior

A Brechfa Knife that I designed with our smaller bushcrafters in mind. It's fully functional but I've made changes that I feel reduce the risk of accidental injury.
It has a snubbed tip and a longer far more slender handle which is nicely profiled for smaller hands.


BK Skinner

The BK Skinner is little hand full of magic! Although designed for skinning game and birds, it has proven to be a great all round utility knife. Trialed in Sweden, it has the approval of true professionals in the job.


Kitchen Knives

Of all the knives I make, I am most proud of my kitchen knives. Years of work has been invested in developing the very best knives that I can make. Beautiful to behold and the very finest tools a home cook or professional chef could wish to own and use.


Just a few of the pieces I've made



I was asked by a client if I would make a custom Chopping Blade. The criteria was very specific requiring me to work to the absolute mm in tolerances. It was a demanding project and a great challenge which I enjoyed immensely.

The finished blade is breath taking and a beautiful example of what I can achieve as an artisan craftsman.


WW2 Smachet

A working replica of the original and first officially issued British Army fighting knife in the second world war.

The Smachet was used for close quarter engagement with the enemy in the trenches.

This was a very interesting piece of work that I had a lot of fun making. The end result is a stunning replica of the original finished in an imperfectly perfect way to show every detail of its character.


Butchers Knife

This was my take on the classic British butchers knife. I asked my local butcher what was his go to knife for most tasks and then I designed this knife around his recommendations. It's a beautifully functional knife with a great balance and feel. I'll be offering a slightly smaller version of this style in the spring ready for BBQ season.

If you have a custom knife you would like made, please get in touch and I'll be happy to discuss the project with you

Answers to Common Questions



Every knife is different and some take longer than others - but I know, including time for heat treatment and the epoxy to dry that it is at least 40 hours per knife. Although they may share a common shape, each one is utterly unique because they are hand made and I don't take any shortcuts.


Basic laws on knives

It’s illegal to:

  • sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less
