With the majority of the knives we sell being produced abroad it gives us great pleasure when we're able to work with small, independent makers and all the better if they're local!

 With a world renowned reputation and many years experience making traditional wet razors, kitchen knives produced by Ilkley based maker, Michael Waterhouse , have been something of a rarity in the past, which makes having the ones on our shelves all the more special.

The blade (of high quality Swedish stainless steel) is cut to Waterhouse’s  “Community Cutlery” pattern and thinly ground to exacting proportions to maximise functionality before being hand sanded over many hours to achieve the beautifully even finish. The handle, made from English Walnut with an Ebony ferrule is cut to a traditional octagonal shape and not only looks stunning but feels superb in the hand .

The chef knife is, for most cooks a go-to knife, it is capable of taking on a myriad of tasks and making light work of them. With its thinly ground 18cm blade this beauty is capable of getting through the chunkiest of veg whist still being nimble enough to finely slice garlic.

  This is a truly beautiful handmade knife that will offer it’s new owner many many years of faithful service.

Waterhouse knives are finished to exacting standards, no time or expense are spared in ensuring each one perfectly matches their vision and all of their knives are covered by a lifetime guarantee.

Waterhouse  - Husband and wife team Michael and Jo Waterhouse are based in Ilkley just like us and produce knives from their home workshop and hand deliver them on foot, keeping the carbon footprint to an absolute minimum on these beautiful handmade knives.

All knives, especially this one, should be hand washed, never put them in a dishwasher. Ever! It will damage the handles, rust even stainless blades, potentially damage the heat treatment and it can be dangerous to other dishwasher users. Avoid soaking it in water, carefully wipe down and dry immediately after use, make it a little ritual and enjoy the process, look after your knife and it will look after you. A little oil on the handle every now and then will keep the wood looking great too.


Knives are only available to persons over 18 years of age. Due to the nature of our business ALL customers will be asked to prove their age at checkout.

All knives ship via an age verified service in accordance with The Offensive Weapons Act 2019, which will mean the postie will need you to be in to receive the delivery & to check your ID if you look under 25.

The law also requires us to carry out a soft age check of the purchaser after checkout, this is done by an automated system that usually doesn't require your input, although we will need to contact you for proof of age if you fail, which can sometimes happen if you use a work address.
