Benjamin Edmonds, 32, is the owner of Blok Knives based in Derby. Being inspired from youtube videos on knife making, he started his business 4 years ago as a hobby, which became his passion and then developed into a thriving business. Today, they currently boasts a waiting list of 2 years and his finely crafted knives are in use by chefs across the globe.
Want to know what causes the markings on the knife blade? Blok’s blade markings come from a natural patina. The patina soaked tissue is smeared across the blade. This gradually oxidizes the metal throughout its life producing a beautiful ageing effect.
