About Our Knives

Production Time

Any knives available on our site are in stock and ready to ship. We ship every Friday.


Origin blades are handcrafted using high carbon steel. This family of steels is known for their edge retention and durability. Unlike stainless steel, these blades will naturally oxidize over time, and age with a beautiful patina. Special care needs to be taken in order to prevent corrosion or rust on the blade.

Most of our knife handles feature a variety of woods from around the world, but they also incorporate metals, like brass, or composite materials such as micarta. We also incorporate deer or moose antler in many of our pieces. Wood has always been the main focus for us though. We love the endless variety of beautiful forms that nature provides.

How to Take Care of Your Knives

Each Origin Handcrafted knife is made with great care, and with the same treatment at home they can develop their own unique character over time, and last for decades.

Clean Your Knife Often and Thoroughly

● Hand wash your knife after you use it. Over time a high carbon steel blade will develop a patina. This is a good thing. A healthy patina protects against rust.

● Clean and dry the handle as often as the blade. Although some handles are water resistant, keeping them clean and dry will help them last longer.

Use a Proper Cutting Board

● Don’t cut on glass, ceramic or stone because they are harder than steel and will dull the edge quickly.

● Wood and plastic cutting boards are ideal for cutting on because they won't dull the edge.

Store Your Knife Carefully

● Do not store your knife loose in a drawer with other utensils. This is one of the fastest ways to dull a good knife.

● Apply mineral oil to the blade with a soft cloth to prevent corrosion if you are storing it for long periods. 

Keep Your Knife Sharp

● Your knife will arrive razor sharp. The best way to maintain its edge is by regularly honing the blade using a leather strop, or a honing rod, on a weekly basis. 

● When your knife needs to be sharpened, a water sharpening stone will do the trick, but these methods do take practice. We offer free lifetime on any of our knives up to two times annually. You just pay the shipping. Contact us for more info.
