THE LAST LEAVES OF AUTUMN
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
--- Emily Bronte
To celebrate the 6th anniversary of Cut Throat Knives, we've been inspired by the shifting seasons. This is for those that love crisp mornings, leaves turning golden, nights drawing in and fires being lit.
This Limited Edition is comprised of two knives, a 7 inch Nakiri and a 8 inch Chinese Cleaver. These can be bought separately or as a pair.
The blades boast a full laser engraved designs on the blade, a recurve heel, stainless steel autumnal bolsters and a skeleton tang with a translucent resin handle that was cast directly onto the blade with floating leaf pins blowing in the wind. Like leaves falling from the tree, every knife will have a unique coloured handle, ranging from intense oranges, firey reds to soft yellows.
Each blade comes with a custom made wooden saya to protect the knife for storage.
These are a limited edition and like leaves falling from the tree will be released in small numbers over the coming months. Just 7 Cleavers and 8 Nakiris will be made.
Find out about them below.
