Bob Kramer Knives

51 year-old Bob Kramer is one of the 114 Master Bladesmiths in the world.  He has completed 10 years in professional kitchens along with 18 years of building knives.  He has been written about in Saveur Magazine, Cook’s Illustrated, The New Yorker and many more.

The Elderwood handled knives are made with Damascus steel, which spends its time in a 2500º oven.  The cost is $300 per inch and the wait is 14 months and growing.

“It’s hard on your eyes, on your elbow on your wrist.  You have to use a respirator.  It’s very dirty”, says Kramer.

I’d love to get my paws on one of these.
