Forged in Sweden by Fredrik Spare and designed in collaboration with Modern Cooking. This design comes as the culmination of years of experience, both in the commercial kitchen as professional chefs and designing, crafting, and maintaining kitchen knives. The knife is light in weight and precision balanced for the perfect pinch grip, as is the preference of most professional chefs.

The profile and geometry were scrutinised to strike a balance between the robust, reassuring stability and heft of a workhorse and the nimble, razor-sharp cutting performance of a laser. To meet this standard the blade has been given a smooth tapered spine that is satisfyingly thick above the heel, yet ultra-thin at the tip. 

Convex ground and super thin behind the edge, this blade is a dream to work with.

With a classic Fredrik Spåre Bog Oak and Brass bolster combination, the handle looks fantastic. The profile, however, was also a topic of debate, attempting to pair the knife with a handle that featured a classic look, while also giving the blade an ergonomic, tactile, and nimble feel. Eventually it was agreed that a tapered Rokkaku Hanmaru (octagonal, rounded) handle would provide the most functional, yet complimentary design.

Call it version one, call it the first of many, we are actively working to improve the design and we welcome your feedback, but we are pretty happy with this first foray into kitchen knife design and pretty sure you are going to enjoy using them.
