No. 1 The Spread knife by Nůž made in Waiuku, New Zealand
No. 1 The Spread is a table knife for your dining experience. Its rounded tip makes it ideal for buttering bread while the sharp edge easily slices through meats, potatoes and vegetables.
This knife is made in Waiuku using high carbon steel recycled sawblades and a handle crafted from FSC-certified American ash wood.
Three brass rivets hold together the blade and the handle.
Each No. 1 The Spread knife is presented in a card sleeve with excellent care and sharpening instructions. Hand wash in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. Oil the blade with a small amount of olive or vegetable oil occasionally to build a protective layer against rust. With use and time your knife will develop a unique patina - a special feature of carbon steel knives.
Nůž was founded in 2019, but its roots go much deeper. Founder Madison Baker has knife-making in her DNA – back in 1983, her father started knife brand Svord. Watching her dad hand-making knives and turning his business into one of New Zealand’s best-loved hunting and fishing knife brands gave her a true appreciation for the craft.
Total length 21cm, blade length 10cm.
Hand-crafted using traditional techniques by Nůž in Waiuku, Aotearoa.
