    Joey Berry is one of the most skilled apprentices of the Fiddleback Forge Apprentice Program, according to Andy himself. Joey's company, J.B. Knifeworks, makes knives that are unlike anything you'll see from the Fiddleback Forge side of the shop. While Joey does make some outdoor knives, as you can see, his focus is on creating great knives for the kitchen.

    Using a variety of steels from high carbon to various types of stainless steels, J.B. Knifeworks crafts some of the thinnest, strongest blades available for the kitchen...integrated with perfectly shaped and detailed handles that are also fantastic in the ergonomics department. Joey's work is full of subtle details like the contour around fingers in the most common grips. The handles become one with the hand that holds them while the blade moves materials effortlessly while you focus on the task at hand with a tool that becomes an extension of your creative efforts on the cutting board.

    Here are his most recent knives. Follow instructions below to pick one up before he gets famous and prices skyrocket with demand!

    I love Joey's work. I still want a more picnic-in-the-park-friendly...three-finger version of his chef's knife lol

    Nice lineup! Question: Is the JBK maker's mark the new version/standard? Just asking because I like it more than the spelled out version. It looks more simple and cleaner. If it's a decision when you get to 1/8" and thicker stock, the JBK version would still be my preference.

    Very nice, there is something about the designs, especially the hunters, that stand out. Wish him well and look forward to seeing more of his work.
