About Us

Once upon a time, two friends walked into a bar. After a few hoppy beers and several shots of courage, they hatched a plan to create a business that incorporated neither of our skills or past experience. And just like that, Rose City Knifeworks was born.

If you're wondering why we chose knife-making over, say, building birdhouses or running a pizza food cart, it's because we hadn't yet figured out how to make a good pizza. Nonetheless, we wanted to create something unique and interesting that would make culinary geniuses everywhere swoon with delight.

At Rose City Knifeworks, we're passionate about all things knives - their history, their design, and the unparalleled craftsmanship that goes into making a fine, precise, and invaluable tool. We aim to create exceptional knives that are not only pleasing to the eye, but also elevate the experience of preparing meals.

Our knives are suitable for anyone who takes their food seriously - from the backyard BBQ king to the Michelin-starred chef. And don't worry, we won't charge you an arm and a leg for the pleasure of owning our handmade knives. We believe that everyone who's passionate about cooking should have access to quality kitchen tools.

So, next time you're in Portland, stop by and say hello! We'll be the ones covered in metal shavings and smelling of burnt pizza (don't ask).
