Most of our steak and chef knives can be engraved. In this blog series, you will find more information regarding what we can recommend and can or cannot do for your engraving request.

First, we do not engrave the knives ourselves. We leave that to a professional who makes custom engraving his business. He offers a small but nice selection of fonts. He can also engrave your company logo on any knife. 

Go Bold or Subtle with script fonts!

You can choose the size and style or let us choose for you.

Fonts for Professional Chefs:

A special knife is the perfect way to celebrate your, or your favorite chef's promotion! 

If your gift knife will be used in a professional environment, many chefs prefer a large, bold look that proudly proclaims the owner of this special knife. 

If your loved one is a professional chef, but the knife will likely be kept as his/her home knife, choose a style that reflects their personality or yours to them. 

Below are a couple samples of fonts we have been asked to use for professional chefs working in busy kitchens with multiple chefs.

Celebrate a promotion or new achievement with bold block fonts!
