At Clarke Knives it was always our passion is to fulfil your desire to own a knife of the highest standard but not necessarily at the very highest cost.

However, when the Covid Pandemic struck in 2020 we lost our main source of income which was running our Bladesmithing Experience Days and Weekends. We therefore started a few side hustles in order to survive. There were 5 of these but 3 did not gain traction. The remaining 2, however, did and these have become so large now that I personally do not have enough time to make knives anymore. Running the Clarke Knives Heat Treatment Service and manufacturing Damascus Billets for knifemakers alongside re-starting our Bladesmithing Experiences has become a full time occupation.

Clarke Knives is now a 3 generation family business and as we grow I’m hopeful that I, or my Son 0r Grandson will be able to start making knives again in the not too distant future.

in the meantime, I’m leaving the Knives section on this website for posterity.
