See what our customers are saying about our knives.

Charlie, I bought  a leather knife and a pen knife from you at the wood show in Haughley.
I am really enjoying using both of them.
In particular the leather knife is the best I have used.
It also retains its edge very well.
Many thanks for a great product.

Just to let you know we are delighted with the two knives we bought from you at Wild and Wonderful Wood the other weekend. Truly beautiful and so well made.

Well, as you can see from my photos, the bespoke 'Styping' knife you fashioned for me does a splendid job!! Not only that, but, because of the unique design, I didn't jab my thigh with the pointed end or slit my finger executing the stype!! I'd call that a win-win situation!!

Many thanks Charlie, for making such a practical and beautiful crafting tool, and thanks too to Ricki for the admin and giggles!!

Hi Charlie, Hope you are doing well! I just wanted to follow up with you and let you know how much my wife Alicia loves the Sgian Dubh knife and sheath you made for her in December! I had been saving it for her birthday and just gave it to her. I had not opened the package when it arrived as I wanted her to be the first to see it. We were both impressed with how beautiful and sturdy it is. It fits her hand perfectly and she absolutely loves the design. Thank you for making such a beautiful present for her that honors her Scottish heritage. We will definitely recommend your site to any friend looking for a special knife.  I am copying Alicia in case she wants to add anything more.

It’s an absolutely beautiful knife! I’m in love with it. It’s a perfect fit & weight in my hand, and I already love the patina in the handle, which I know will improve w use. I appreciate the craftsmanship, Charlie!

I have only just come home and opened the knives, absolutely great. It’s the blend of form, function and aesthetic that you capture that's so rare. Lorraine, my wife, tells me we now need to replace the 10” chef's knife so I’ll be in touch after we come back from holiday in a few weeks.

I received  my Sgian dubh yesterday and I think it’s brilliant.  

Its perfect mix of beautifully made and proper knife that I was looking for.

So thank you V knives for that.

I've just now got my knife in the post, which is a present for my girlfriend's upcoming birthday. She always uses a cheap paring knife because she can't stand how unwieldy my santoku is, and I have to say I think she's going to go bananas when she sees how wonderful this knife is! Thank you so much, it's absolutely perfect and I'm very excited to see how happy she'll be using it! I will be sure to spread the word if the topic of knives ever comes up amongst our friends.

The knives are wonderful and ageing nicely.

I thought I should write to you to thank you for the knives, rather than just send you an e-mail. They are all of them beautifully designed, exceptionally well-made, and a great pleasure to use … Thank you for the speedy and safe dispatch of my orders; superb service from an outstanding craftsman!
