My Passion

Culinary knives are household staples regardless of country, culture, or creed. They are essential tools that help prepare home-cooked meals that feed our families and loved ones.

I take great joy in making chef knives that will delight. Every knife is handcrafted using the finest materials and designed for performance and beauty. Whether you’re a home cook or an executive restaurant chef, I hope these knives will be used, loved, and handed down for generations.

Services

Custom Knives

Push the boundaries of what you have previously thought was possible. Handcrafted kitchen knives featuring Advanced geometries, world-class materials, fused with a passion for excellence.

Heat Treatment

At Topham Knife Co. we offer specialized heat treatment services to fellow knifemakers and bladesmiths. Most of the popular grades of knife steels, (carbon, stainless & damascus) can be hardened, up to a maximum length of 50cm and 10cm wide.

Photography

Knives and photography go well together as knife makers spend countless hours crafting their knives and it’s only right that the beauty is captured to show on social media, your website or print. Build a portfolio that will wow your prospective clients.

Sharpening

Topham Knife Co sharpens each knife entirely by hand using Japanese water stones, starting at 1,000 grit and finishing between 4,000 grit and 6,000 grit (up to 10,000 grit). After polishing on stones, the knife is brought to a razor finish on a leather strop.
