Chefs love their knives. They protect them, care for them, and keep them close at all times. But, you know who loves knives more than cooks? Knifemakers. True hand-made knives are a rarity, and in America, there are only a handful of bladesmiths who deal with them. Quintin Middleton of St. Stephen, South Carolina is one of them. His company is Middleton Made Knives. Francis Lam talked with Middleton about the craft of knifemaking, and how he creates knife designs specifically with chefs in mind. See more images of Middleton's beautiful knives at Middleton Made Knives Instagram.
