My first suggestion would be Martin Annegarn (https://www.maknives.nl/)

And if you're in Europe maybe have a look at www.brisa.fi who also sell them. (Mainly scandinavian...
Lot of people suggesting OP "Grow a pair" or that his relationship is broken.'
I read his comment as that its more along the lines of good natured ribbing between him an his partner. Nothing really broken there.
Anyway I understand how you feel. My wife has always been very supportive and...

Simple no nonsense file knife. No scales, no screws, no pins, nothing that can easily break.
Ground from an (annealed) Nicholson Bastard file. Then heat treated again as if it were a normal steel billet. Edges all rounded so they're nice an smooth. Teeth slightly dulled so they're not sharp but...
