Lew Griffin Knives

Hand crafted in Ireland

Lew Griffin found his way to knife making after seeing the work of Bob Kramer on the late Anthony Bourdain produced Raw Craft television series. A passion for the blade had always been present, but witnessing Bob create one of his blades inspired Lew to take those first steps as a knife maker.

With experience in the steel and mining industries and an education in art and design, Lew has created some of the highest performing and stylish knives arounds. Combining local materials like shed deer antler and bog oak along with high performance steels to create highly functional and beautiful knives.

Function comes first with a Lew Griffin knife and most of his blades also feature high performance geometry, predominately in the form of an “S” grind. These are fantastic, handmade knives with some of the best performance, fit and finish and style that we have come across.

Fredrik Spåre

Hand crafted in Sweden

For Fredrik Spåre knife making began as a way to bond with his father. A simple knife making course, over a weekend in the 90s. For Fredrik the process of creating something from raw steel and wood was inspirational and over time knife making developed into a hobby. Fredrik made kitchen knives and hunting knives for friends and family and eventually knife making became a profession.

Today Fredrik mainly makes kitchen knives. From start to finish every step is completed in house, from steel making and forging, grinding, and sharpening to handle construction and fitting. Fredrik uses mostly Swedish steel from Uddeholm and Sandvik as well as locally sourced handle materials.

In our experience, at Modern Cooking, Fredrik's knives feature premium fit and finish, artisan design and performance. Details like hand hammered bolsters, high performance geometry and ultra-high HRC in his Honyaki and Mono steel blades make these knives well worth your consideration. Very good quality and value!
