Wissahickon Knives is really just Matt Shaver, grinding steel and shaping wood in a small Pennsylvania shop that aims to make each blade better than the last. Started in 2014 in Philadelphia, the shop moved to a larger space in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, a small town on the Delaware border in 2016. Hundreds of blades later, all knives are still made by hand using the best materials available.

Today, my work is available mainly through custom orders only but occasional knives are made available to purchase. To find out about available knives, please sign up for the mailing list in the form below. To book a spot for a custom order, please email:
