The Cooking Guild was created out of a passion for the art of knife-making and a love of cooking. Our blacksmiths have 20 years of experience in hand-forging bespoke kitchen knives.

We truly believe that a high quality knife changes the cooking experience. After using a dull knife for many years, I couldn’t believe the difference when I finally switched. Chopping, slicing and preparing ingredients is so much more satisfying with a screamingly sharp, well-balanced and high quality knife.
