Handmade Knives by Andy Gladish

ElementFe is an artistic metal studio located on Guemes Island, in the lovely San Juan Islands of Washington State. 
Rooted in artistic blacksmithing, the studio is now designing and producing top quality cooking knives for the discerning chef. I also make outdoor and hunting knives, bushcraft, cutting tools for the military and police, and folding knives.

Handmade means made from raw materials in my workshop

From sheets of blade steel, blocks of fine, sustainably harvested hardwoods, and the tools of the metalsmith come finely crafted knives, 

 

 

Always the favorite knife in the kitchen

My wife and I test each design for practicality, feel, and function in our own kitchen, and constantly seek feedback from cooks who own and use them daily.
