I’ve been a farrier (horse shoer) since 1980. Around 2005, I developed a knife for my fellow farriers that has proven popular all over the world! However, it became a bit of a family joke that all of the knives in our own kitchen were useless. How can a guy who makes knives suffer so much with culinary endeavors?
Fast forward to today, where with the help of my friends Chef’s Josh Bard and Jack Pickett from Stowe Vermont, the JH Forge kitchen knives were born. Josh and Jack’s professional expertise helped me to create these balanced, comfortable knives sharp enough for the most precise slicing.
All are handmade by me, in my shop in Pawlet Vermont, using the highest quality steel and all local hardwood handles.
