who uses our knives?
After months of working with Matt on this incredible set of custom steak knives we were over the moon with the finished result, and knowing that our knives are in one of the best restaurants in the world fuels our passion to keep pushing forward and to never stop thriving for perfection.
James martins Saturday kitchen is a programme all us chefs and foodies love so seeing him use one of our Fat-punk collaboration knives every week is absolutely incredible.
From the very start of our journey we have had nothing but support from Paul Ainsworth, John walton and Chris mclurg, the top left picture is of a set of three butter knives we created for his beautiful restaurant no6 in Padstow.
That's right the Italian culinary great that is Francesco Mazzei popped in to pick up his Pareusi Classic at our workshop, his story of how he got to where he is now is truly inspiring and it was an absolute pleasure showing him and his lovely family around our Cornish HQ.

When we heard that footballing legend David Beckham had one of our knives we were utterly speechless and over joyed, I do believe there may have even been tears as it shows our little cornish knife company is being noticed by some absolute icons.

Chef Kirk Westaway
chef Kirk westaway is an incredibly inspiring chef who started his culinary journey attending Exeter college where he learnt his craft, after working in kitchens across the world he is now chef patron at Jaan in Singapore where he holds two Michelin stars and has been voted one of the best chefs in the country.
He is now also our Singapore ambassador.
All of our beautiful knives are made to order from the very finest materials.
The blades are made from 1095 Sheffield steel which is a very high quality carbon steel that holds an incredibly sharp and strong edge, it also forms a beautiful patina over time which gets better the more you use it.
For our handles we only use the most superior exotic woods which are then finished with pure natural beeswax from the hives across the road which leaves your knife smelling of sweet,wonderful honey.
Every knife is served in its very own presentation box with gorgeous brass fittings and a leaflet which includes its very important certificate of authenticity to prove you have purchased a genuine Pareusi kitchen knife.

Pareusi was all created from one beautifully rustic chefs knife.
After finishing my weekly hours as sous chef at a two rosette hotel boredom got the better of me,so I decided why not make a kitchen knife,how hard can that be ?
after a couple of days of colourful language a few cuts and burns a knife was born. It was far from perfect but it worked splendidly.
being proud of what we created I brought it into college to use for my prep that day and as soon as I pulled it out of my knife roll I was surrounded by chefs asking if they could buy one.
it was at this point it struck me like a powerful lightinig bolt of clarity that this wonderfully rustic handmade kitchen knife could evolve into something truly special.
