GOING BEYOND THE BASICS
Handmade by passionate craftsmen with decades of experience, Route83 knives were created with the modern chef in mind.
We left the manufactured, mass-produced look and feel behind to focus on quality and beauty in each individual blade and handle. Every knife we produce is unique, made from the highest quality materials possible.
Through numerous prototypes, we painstakingly worked to develop a proportionate knife with longer handles to fit the hands of chefs everywhere. In the process, we found innovative ways to reduce the weight and lighten the feel of each knife so that wielding it is both powerful and comfortable. Rather than sending our knives to a lab, we sent them to trusted chefs and culinary experts, relying on feedback from professionals who use these tools everyday. Their expertise and knowledge helped us make the necessary changes and find the perfect design.
We’ve carefully developed two knife lines to provide a range of options. Our Classic Range was created using premium quality German steel while our Signature Range uses Damascus steel which can be distinguished from the beautiful lines and waves seen running across each blade.
Each blade is made from unplated metal with intricate, hand-hammered patterns that draw attention to the beauty of each piece, but also act as a deliberate feature to give slicing and chopping a streamlined, non-stick functionality.
Each handle is unique, made from natural, food-safe wood that absorbs the oils from your hand, developing a look and feel unique to the user. Our rare Antler and Antelope handles were created in the same way – ergonomically crafted to fit the hand of chefs and culinary experts, providing a unique look and feel to enhance the user experience.
We didn’t stop there when it came to creating the perfect knife. In order to maintain the longevity of your knives, we developed a beautiful storage option using solid wood for our Classic Range boxes and high quality walnut for each of the boxes containing our Signature Range blades.
