Mehrshad Taghinejad of Shir knives Germany is a talented artist with a history of working as a process engineer in advanced manufacturing. With a passion for food and cooking Mehrshad turned his diverse skill set towards knife making.
Initially influenced by Japanese knife making, the Shir knife design aesthetic has developed into unique functional art. Performance first geometry and profile is key, but each knife is then dressed in a unique artistic styling. Amethyst gemstones, spent bullet casings and stabilised woods along with premium steels make each of Mehrshad’s creations a stunning, high-performance knife.
We very impressed by this artists work and proud to have his work on our site and if you manage to get one of his knives into your hands, we think you will be just as impressed.
