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!
