Damasteel® Chef Invitational 2022

Thank you for another incredible DCI!

The quality of the pieces each year just keeps getting better and better - and with no exception, the calibre of makers truly blew us away this year. This year, we had hundreds of visitors at the online event and 20 knifemakers - one of our biggest shows ever. Dates for 2023 will be announced in the new year. Until then, please check out the knife page to see this year's entries. And scroll down to see this year's award winners.
