The Story of Young Knives:
Young Knives was born out a love of craftsmanship and desire to produce unique beautifully crafted knives that stand the test of time. Working out of his workshop with only minimal resources, Sandy began creating knives in 2013 and has honed his skills over the years, moving from an initial hobby to a true passion. Through his love of cooking sandy started to design chef knives that would stand up to the demands of the working kitchen without sacrificing beauty in the design.

Looking after your knives:
Due to the minimum alloy and the purity of the carbon steel, the blade will naturally patina through use. This will aid in protecting the steel from corrosion, however ensuring that the blade is cleaned, dried off and stored away from moisture will protect the blade from rusting. These knives are not suitable for dishwashers.
Before leaving the workshop the handle is soaked in boiled linseed oil to help protect the material and bring out the grain of the wood. This is easily maintained by topping it up every 6 months with a small application of boiled linseed oil and a soft cloth ( ensure the cloth is washed out after each application)
