From Humble Beginnings
What started as a hobby has now turned into so much more.
Kirkman Knives started as a school project and over the course of a couple of years has turned into a thriving business. From starting off creating knives in the shed to... well Kirkman Knives are still made in the shed, but there have been many advancements since then in order to achieve the standard of quality that is inherent to each handmade knife made today.
Not Just a knife... a statement
Ask yourself this, what is the perfect knife?
You are probably thinking that the perfect knife is one that looks great, feels good in the hand and stays sharp. If this is the kind of knife you are after then you have come to the right place! These three elements are the core of each Kirkman Knife, each as crucial as the other and when combined they create a functional work of art.
Why do Kirkman Knives look so great?
The answer to this is simple and that is because we use premium Tasmanian timbers. From Huon Pine, Blackwood and Sassafras to Myrtle and Tas Oak. You can be sure that each Kirkman Knife sports the finest timber that Tasmania has to offer, many of which are quite rare.
Why do Kirkman Knives feel so good in the hand?
This comes don to the fact that each design has went through rigorous testing and re-designing to achieve comfort for the user. The knife becomes not just a tool but an extension of your arm.The full tang design ensures strength without adding excessive weight.
How sharp are Kirkman Knives?
Shaving sharp guaranteed! As Kirkman Knives are made out of high carbon steel they are able to hold a very sharp edge. Thorough field testing of the knives has been done in order to test the durability of the edge and the results are sure to impress. Once that edge starts to dull a few strikes on the diamond steel gets the knife back to being sharp once again.
