NJORD kitchen knives are handmade tools from Ansø of Denmark.
Drawing influence from unique elements of Danish design and Japanese heritage, NJORD kitchen knives will age beautifully, growing alongside their owner throughout a lifetime of use. Whether you’re a professional chef or a passionate home cook who enjoys precision and quality, each knife will invite you to express your gastronomic creativity.
The blade is forged in Japan. This process includes the forging of 33 layers of San Mai Steel, giving the blade its unique patterned look, incredible strength, and an amazingly resilient edge.
The handle is made for each customer during ordering from either ash, oak and bog oak. Chosen for their durability, both woods will only become more beautiful over time and with use.
The wood is treated with a special sealing method to make sure that it remains both beautiful and robust throughout its lifetime.
Please note that since we use natural materials for the handles each knife will will vary in looks.
