Each knife includes a handmade leather wrap which, like all Nordquist products, is crafted in-house. The case is made from 6oz oil tanned leather sourced from S.B. Foot Tanning Company, the principal supplier of leather for Red Wing Shoes. An auburn leather lace is woven into the supple leather, securing the knife inside. This simple case is as functional as it is elegant, offering safe storage for your new knife—or perhaps your old one!

Sharpening an s-grind knife
Like the entire Nordquist Designs line, this chef's knife is of truly heirloom quality. Handcrafted in the British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley from locally-sourced materials, these kitchen tools are made to last generations.
