Custom Made Dining Cutlery Set.
A creative challenge, a collaboration, a project that occupied our space in the woods for some time. We hope to spark some dinner conversation and contribute to many memorable evenings…
Recovered and recycled, this is high quality steel that would otherwise become a mix for cheap pot metal. Industrial waste at its best.
4.5” full tang blades, 2mm spines and moose antler scales
Angled blade edge to handle. The 4.5” steak knife blade is a thin carbon steel with a cobalt content that holds an extremely sharp edge.
Copper has been used by the indigenous here for thousands of years. In trade, ceremony, tools, cutlery and generally showing affluence. We’ve melted copper onto the blades intentionally distorting the blades. The distortion comes from what we see here living in the bush for 20 years. There are some strong leaders but there are many lost first nations people. The distortion follows the organic lines in the moose antler handles. Moose are disappearing. We’ve used off cuts of moose antler, bent and distorted. We boiled the pieces, straightened them with clamps and vise. Everyone blames everyone else for the disappearing moose. Let’s all blame the wolves. Shoot them, snare them and poison them. We’ve witnessed it here. Human impact on the indigenous peoples and environment is distorted.
Two weights of leather, copper saddle rivets, handstitched with two types of waxed thread. The original edges of the leather from the tannery are incorporated where possible. Working art.
We can make knives custom made for you. Handle material, size, blade length, spine thickness, theme. We make art.
Each Steak knife is unique and is a piece of sculpture unto itself. Everything is handmade, hand carved and hand stitched.
