INTRODUCING BIG RED KNIVES
BRING ART TO YOUR KITCHEN
Knives Engineered To Look Impressive Whilst Lasting Forever
big red knives | The Place Where art meets engineering
We are a local knife-maker based in Woodville North, SA. We make our knifes using a high carbon (1.1%) ultra tough steel (VG10). The HRC (Rockwell Hardness Score) is around 60-61 - significantly higher than common knives. A harder edge that lasts longer.
These blades are paired with native Australian wood handles (Re-incarnation of local woods like Shiraz, Olives, Almond etc) after they are pulled from the ground (when the yielding of fruit ends).
We strive to make our kitchen tools as beautiful as the food we make.

Who are Big Red Knives?
Welcome to the "Big Red" Australian Knife Shed :) We are a small team based in Woodville North, South Australia.
We've made this website to help you see what we are up to.
We are mainly focused on unique Australian Kitchen Knives based on our local native animals however we are slowly moving beyond the kitchen playing with Table knives (cheese knifes and champagne sabres), BBQ knives (steak knives for example) and many more.
Knives we love become "Knife Art" in our kitchen, an arm extension at a BBQ and a knife of supreme elegance at a champagne brunch.
We are making knives because we love them - and those that use them.
KITCHEN KNIVES | TABLE KNIVES | BBQ KNIVES
The first batch of handmade Australian chef knives ever made were focused on taking our kitchen experience to the next level.
We wanted them based on Australia, our animals and our lives - tough, strong and lasting forever - a fun fusion of engineering and art.
But we won't stop here.
We are currently working with arguably Australia's finest cheese maker and judge making Table knives, like cheese knives, bread knives, champagne sabers and steak knives to take table and outdoor dining to the next level.
Lastly, we are currently working with Australia's greatest butchers and BBQ makers to create tools that take outdoor preparation and celebration to a level yet to be created.
Thanks in advance for helping us on this journey :)
