Thinking Blade Knives

Behind the Design

The inspiration for ThinkingBlade Knives came to me while living in Norway, one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. With 3,500 "knivmaker", or knife makers, and a total population of close to 4.5 million, Norway holds the distinction of having one of the largest populations of knife makers per capita.

Early in its development, I shared my first design with Harald Sellevold, a great practitioner of the Norwegian knife-making art who lives in the coastal city of Bergen. Harald liked my initial design and made a custom matched set from which the first knife, Utvikling was born.

ThinkingBlade Knives blends the simplicity of more traditional knives with modern materials and functional design elements.
