Each knife is individually crafted in Adelaide by a vet-turned-bladesmith using high carbon steel sourced from discarded files. High carbon steel is perfect for creating knives; it is very hard and retains its edge long after milder steels have become blunt. The different materials sourced result in the unique shape and function of each individual knife... forged by hand using traditional methods to create one-off quirky creations.
Please note: Every Dogboy knife is made from different materials, meaning no two are ever the same. The knife you receive may differ in appearance to the ones pictured.
Artisan knives born from a desire to create beautiful yet functional items that may otherwise end up in the rubbish heap. DBK is Richard Cooper who is happily working his brand of creative magic during his "spare time" in a backyard shed in Brompton SA. His knives can now be found in the kit of some of Adelaide's best chefs such as Simon Bryant, Jock Zonfrillo, Nicolas Ariola and Jesse Spiby.
