Meet the DCI knife maker - John Phillips

John Phillips – the talented knife maker from Knoxville, Tennessee, was awarded “Best in Show” and “Best bread knife” on the DCI online August 2020. Meet him in his booth and have the chance to buy one of his stunning knives at the show.

Believes in communal sharing around the table—good food, good friends, family, and well-made cutlery to present a memorable meal. Each knife is a labor of love and takes up to 40 hours over several days to craft from selection of steel to finished piece. The steel’s origin and history, combined with the hand-forged process, ensure each piece becomes a unique, custom blade.
