For a millenium, there has been edged blades that have made iconic impacts over the course of history. From swords to knives and daggers, they have taken all forms and shapes and ranged from simple straight forward knives to ornate ceremonial sabers.

Forging these pieces required an experienced blacksmith, fast forward to today and nothing has changed. In this article we will give a brief history of how these blades were forged, and how they inspired us to create the finest quality kitchen implements anywhere.

Before iron and steel there was bronze. During the Bronze Age (17th century B.C.), bronze was the only metal that was used to make blades. As time progressed blacksmiths were able to forge different metals such as iron and steel by adding elements such as carbon. With the advent of steel, a whole new world was opened up for blacksmiths. An example of this would be one of the most famous blades ever forged, the katana.

The Japanese katana was the samurai’s weapon of choice and even saw use into World War Two in the Japanese Imperial Army. Although gone from combat, today United States Marines and militaries of other nations around the world still use high quality sabers in their drills and ceremonies.

Quality, crafted blades have stood the test of time, that is why Forged in Fire uses the same methods that our ancestors did, blended with modern science to produce our kitchen knives. These knives are born with a heart of steel and fire, forged with patience and hammered with the greatness of generations past. We wanted to give you something special, a reliable, tough knife that will stand the test of time. History showed us the blueprint, today we execute.
