You never knew you needed a bench knife until this beauty graced your eyeballs. Or maybe you did, because you bake and cook and stuff. Either way, the bench knife is the handy little sous chef you never knew you needed. The assistant you never knew you needed. It scrapes. It chops. It cuts. It carries. It does it all while looking like a million bucks. Want to show off at the next pie bake-off? We've got you covered. Truthfully, we do, because it comes with a leather sheath. No joke. We can even engrave the wood handle for you.
This piece of cutlery art is made from wire cable steel, melted down and smashed into shape. The bottom edge is polished and given a slight edge to help it slide through the dough with ease. The handle is mixed wood arrayed in this awesome 2x2 pattern. You won't find anything like it anywhere else!
There will be variations in the damascus pattern and mixed wood handles, and you may not get one from the pictures (but it should be very similar). Enjoy the surprise!
Disclaimer: It's sort of a knife. It's slightly sharp. So still be careful! You can't play your surprise tuba solo at your daughter's wedding while missing fingers! You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.
1085 high carbon and even this semi-stainless cable steel is great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (0000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.
You can use WD40 or rust remover, just be sure to clean the blade thoroughly before use, especially if using it for food.
The key is keeping it dry. Any moisture that sits on the metal will cause rust. That being said, I've had some in my drawer for years with no issues!
I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!
Everything you see in the listings is in stock, but we may not have the quantity you need. Send me a note with any questions.
For large custom orders:
These are usually orders of 10+, and you can go full custom. We can do almost any amount given enough time.
You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.
Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!
Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.
-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.
We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!
I'm open to the discussion. Send me a note!

My son bought this with the bit of money he inherited from his great-grandfather as something he could keep forever as a reminder of gramps. Because I was mid-move when we ordered it, the shipping instructions I left were very specific. I’m happy to say the knife was shipped as per the unique instructions and we’ve received the knife. It’s a beaut and my boy loves it. Sturdy, sharp, nice weigh for the boy’s first fix-blade. It’ll see many, many years of use. 10/10 would buy again (if this item was still available), probably for myself this time!

Awesome quality and the time they got it done for me was awesome as well. This knife was a wedding present to my sister and her eyes lit up when I gave it to her. Will definitely do business with this shop again in the future
