Watch A Skilled Bladesmith Make A $960 Kitchen Knife

Blenheim Forge is a steel workshop in Peckham, London. The workshop creates a range of traditional hand-forged kitchen knives. Each knife is made entirely in-house; the blade is first laminated and folded before being forged into the correct shape. Once shaped, the blade is sharpened on a grind stone and belt grinder. 

Some of their knives are laminated with 200 layers of metal and each one has a unique pattern. The knives are often made in small batches and they range in price from £160 to £700.

Well, today folding doesnt make the blade better, it just makes it fancy. used to folding was necessary to push out impurities out of the steel. but with modern steel there is actually no need to do that anymore. but yeah, if you spend so much money on one knife I guess you want that its also pretty and not just sharp…

Traditional doesn’t mean better. Each knife has a “unique” design meaning imperfect. If they are making 30 knives a week between a couple guys, man their profit margin through the roof. $2 piece of metal, resold for $900. Great businessmen
