THE KNIVES

 

The knife is the oldest tool in a chef's armoury - older even than the management of fire, by somewhere between a million and two million years. Even at the earliest stages of human tool making, man was not randomly slashing at his food, but making careful decisions about which cuts to make with which tools. Knives are often our primary interaction between ourselves and our food - It is with this in mind that Cut Throat Knives are designed to enhance the cooking experience.

In a world of increasingly disposable, valueless items, where homes and garage sales and superstores are packed with mediocre pieces that are bought, used, and ignored, what could be more important than learning once again to value what we buy, and feel a connection to the people who create around us?

 

We strive to achieve two things with every knife we make. Firstly, that each knife is made with the utmost quality and integrity; and secondly, that each knife will go on to bring a lifetime of service and culinary enjoyment.

The Cut Throat range consists of kitchen and culinary knives. Available in High Carbon or Stainless. All Knives come with Wooden Sayas.

Find out about them below.

6" Boning

If you’re not using a boning knife to dress meats, you might be missing out on some of the tastiest morsels.

Meats get a lot of their flavour from the fat and bone that contact the muscle. Without the right tool you’re leaving a lot of flavour on the bone.

6" Santoku
The Santoku excels at the
 'three virtues': slicing, dicing, and mincing.

 

The Santoku knife provides comfortable control and excellent cutting performance all in a petite package.

9½" Sabatier
A homage to French Knife making, the Sabatier is the kitchen workhorse. It is adept at all kitchen tasks but excels when it comes to heavy duty work. Cutting and carving are the domain of this tool.

 

4" Paring
This knife features a 4″ blade and handle. It’s great for peeling, coring and general ‘off board’ food preparation.


Built to perform delicate work, it excels at gentler tasks, but a better word to denote the paring knife's true nature is precise.

 

How are they made?

Our blades feature full tang knife handles and are available in both high end stain resistant steel or high carbon steel.
