Welcome to Rose Cutlery

Finest Custom Handmade Cutlery


Dedicated to the perfection of "Human Kinds" oldest tool, the knife, as both an art form and an optimized cutting instrument.

Offering both, one-off custom and extremely limited "bench made" pieces, I am dedicated to fulfilling the desires of my customers for the finest cutlery available today.

Using the highest grade blade steels available to include my own handmade, "full billet" forge welded damascus.

I utilize both the hand forged or billet ground technique to shape each blade individually.
