    Here are our three kitchen models. All are made by my dad and myself using top quality materials and some automation (cnc milling) to help keep prices down. Both our CNC and satin finishes are shown below but we don't show every combination of blade finish and handle color. For more information on our knives or to purchase a knife, visit our website!

    **A note to american customers: the Canadian dollar is currently a lot weaker than the USD, which means savings of around 20% for you!** prices are listed in both CAD and USD (our website prices can be viewed in either currency)


    Alder 8" chef's knife:

    The Alder is a classic german style 8" chef's knife. A nice wide blade and full handle make it very comfortable to use. It slices well yet has good backbone for demanding tasks like opening squash. The blade is made of cpm S35VN stainless, which takes a great edge and keeps it, without being difficult to sharpen.

    Price(Canadian $): $169.00-194.00 depending on blade finish.
    **approximate USD price** 134-153


    Sitka 7" santoku:

    The Sitka is our take on the popular Santoku. It features a thin blade and shallow edge angle to allow for precise slicing and chop cutting. This knife push cuts beautifully. On the G10 scales we hollow out the back to achieve good balance with the light blade. The CPM S35VN blade steel takes a razor edge at 18 degrees (inclusive) and holds it well.

    No we don't at the moment, with the exchange rate where it is, we can't afford to do the coupons (all our materials come from the US). Sorry!

    These are amazing value, and even better, amazing knives. Don't let the great deal fool you into thinking you're getting a lower performance knife. The salal I bought is among the best performing knives I have ever owned, and easily the best kitchen knife, edging out some spectacular knives I have used and owned.

    Buy these remembering they are worthy of the custom knife moniker and you will not be disappointed. My wife loves how hers glides through potatoes and other harder veggies with ease. And the somewhat unconventional handle is very comfortable, clearly time was spent developing a good handle with a great feel and function. Just like the blade.

    Probably better labeled a steal than "great value". Buy 'em they may not look conventional but they work like nobody's business. :)

    Beautiful knives. Do you still offer the mirror finish on the Trillium Parers?

    As a rule, we don't really do the mirror anymore. We found it was just too much work on S35VN. It is a very difficult steel to polish! We could probably do one as a special order type deal for you. Send us an email if you're interested. I will be away for the weekend, so the earliest I'd reply is sunday night.

    Cheers,
    mike

    Got the knife a few weeks ago and have really been enjoying it. Came razor sharp and has held it's edge way better than the old Henkels and Wustof knives we usually use in the kitchen. Thanks Mike and co!

    I'm very interested in these. Any chance you'll make one that's taller at the heel. Say 2.4"?

    Thanks! At this time we aren't planning anything. If we did a 10 inch chefs at some point, it would likely be around that wide.
