The Hownam Studio Chef’s Knife is both an invaluable kitchen tool and an heirloom thanks to its rarity and provenance. Not least, because we believe our chef’s knife to be the only one made in Scotland.
The Hownam Studio icon is embedded on the handmade presentation box, together with our maker’s mark.

Beautifully designed for efficacy and aesthetics. The full tang blade is made with the best quality Damascus Steel in the world, formed from hundreds of layers using the Hownam Studio Pitctish cup and ring pattern, appropriately dating back to the Bronze Age.
The unique qualities of the Damascus steel are enhanced by Powder Metallurgy. This produces an incomparable strength with zero inclusions, excellent edge retention and a resistance to corrosion. Simply, you will experience an infinitely sharper edge for cutting and superior performance.
The handle is carved from Tiger Pattern Bog Oak, carbon-dated to 4,900 years ago.
