Our knife blades are all designed by us and made exclusively for us by traditional blacksmiths in Japan. Every handle is individually handcrafted in our Hawaii workshop.

Custom hand-forged chef knives can be ordered individually or as sets from Salter Fine Cutlery of Hawaii

Every process is done by hand. There are no fancy CNC machines pumping out your knives. No premade handles or handle slabs. 

Gregg, the owner and artist, will start producing your order by picking a board of wood to best compliment your knife or set, then mill that wood, making the handle slabs and pieces for your preferred storage box, stand or knife block to best compliment the handles.
