F.N. Sharp Artisan Cutlery

The only knives you’ll ever need

Our customers value quality materials, and appreciate aesthetically pleasing additions to their culinary utensils. Years of research, education, and testing have led us to choose the materials, designs, and manufacturing processes for F.N. Sharp knives.

Our Steel: Japanese VG-10 core with 67 layer Damascus VG-10 and VG2 cladding in feather pattern. This sought-after steel is known for its balance between hardness, durability, and corrosion resistance. Coupled to a modern, computer-controlled forging and heat-treating process, our semi-custom knives remain sharper and resist scratching and chipping better than ordinary mass produced consumer-grade cutlery.

Our Handle: All F.N. Sharp knives have a full-tang handle encased in G10 material. G10 composite material is extremely durable and resists swelling, warping, cracking, and fading. Its stylish yet durable nature is a perfect compliment to our VG-10 blades. F.N. Sharp handles are specifically designed to fall comfortably to hands of all sizes for proper grip while chopping, slicing and dicing.

F.N. Sharp Chef Knife
Chef's Knife

The Chef's Knife

Our chef’s knife is a culinary quiver killer. It combines the weight and balance of the finest European knives with the shallow profile of a traditional Japanese blade. Put them together, and you’ve got the low resistance and high leverage to cut effortlessly through a hearty summer squash without sacrificing the belly and dexterity for rock-chopping aromatic herbs and greens. Put plainly, there is no more versatile knife in your arsenal. (And yeah, it’s F.N. Sharp.)
