Old World Craftsmanship New World Quality

Combining old world craftsmanship with new world quality is the principle that guides us here at Dogwood Custom Knives. Our handmade knives are crafted entirely in house to ensure that every knife meets our rigid standards for quality. We firmly believe that function is the greatest form of beauty and that is why we hand assemble each of our knives with very little ornamentation. The art is in the fit and finish of these knives and they will be a joy to use for generation after generation. Our greatest hope is that our knives will one day become a trusted family heirloom that has been used with confidence and pride for generations.

Yes that is a word that I just made up but, it should be in Wikipedia by now, go check - as I was saying our blades are getting so fat they can’t do the job they were meant to do.  In this analogy mass production and the industrial revolution is McDonald’s.     Not too long ago, when we worked on farms and did physical labor,     we
