Studio visit to Blenheim Forge

This weekend I visited a few friends - three knifemakers who work together under the name Blenhiem Forge. They specialise in hand-forged chef knives in the Japanese tradition, predominantly using Hitachi Blue and White-Paper steels in their blades. Recent experiments with pattern-welded iron/nickel Damascus have given rise to a new offering - their fourth archetype, the Gyuto. All their work is completed in-house, from hand-forging, through the numerous dramatic processes needed to breath life into steel. MT
