I have exciting news… Will over at Heartwood Forge is giving away one of his gorgeous knives!
This beautiful 5.5 inch small batch petty knife with a walnut handle is up for grabs for one lucky, lucky winner. If you aren’t familiar with Heartwood Forge, please click over to this post I wrote in my Southern Makers Series: Heartwood Forge for his whole story.
Will hand crafts each knife from reclaimed steel and salvaged wood in his workshop just north of Athens, Georgia. They are high quality works of functional art, made by a fantastic guy. I’m proud to say that Will is a good friend, and I stand behind these knives 100%. (And so does he!) With proper care, a Heartwood Forge knife will last a lifetime and then some.
As an aside: anyone notice that Southern Restoration Furniture cutting board? ;)
The best part is, a Heartwood Forge knife only gets better with age – unlike so many consumer goods these days. Will’s attention to detail and high quality craftsmanship mean that although this knife was made from discarded materials, it will out-work and out-last the other knives in your drawers. This is as important to Will as it is to me. Buy once – use forever.
So in the spirit of summer and all the garden-fresh veggies to be chopped, Will is giving away one of these beauties!!
And in the spirit of our appreciation of high-quality handmade goods and turning reclaimed materials into the sharpest (I love a good pun) knives around, I want to know:
How do you reduce/reuse/recycle?
