The second one is a touch lighter, with less cutting edge and a shorter handle. It’s hard to beat this look. Each hammer blow, each special grain and mark in the wood, each hand-drawn stitch contributes to the traditional look of these handcrafted cutting tools.

It isn’t every day that you get to celebrate someone really special, so here’s what Lucas and Ike put together as a gift.

Lucas made this forged, antler-handled cleaver with mosaic pins; Ike made this beautiful osage cutting board. They were presented with this (delicious!) assortment of crackers with dilled havarti, muenster, and smoked gouda cheese!
