Bodman Blades

Chef and farmer Ben Bodman doesn't recall a moment in his life where he didn’t feel the solid grip of a knife in his hand. While working at L’Enclume in the Lake District, he became fascinated with knife-making and built his own coal forge from an ancient 50-gallon oil drum. Now, he hand-forges super-fine carbon steel knives in his workshop on his family farm in Wiltshire, repeatedly sharpening blades on a whetstone and perfecting each one with a glossy wax to ensure they last a lifetime.
