Culinary knives for chefs & restaurants with taste, from the hands of a Welshman living in France.


The obsession

Chop Knives is the moniker of Craig Lockwood, a man obsessed with food and creating exquisite knives for some of the best restaurants in the World.


“A good meal should never be spoilt by bad cutlery.”

— Craig Lockwood


Mixing traditional processes with cutting edge technologies, Chop knives are built to stand up to the demands of a busy restaurant.

Vacuum chambers, extreme temperature kilns and cryogenic treatments are used to build each knife. Think science lab rather than a dusty workshop.
