A Group of Talented Larrakins
Our team is small, and growing. Founders, Ramon and Shannon, have gathered a group of fun-loving, talented people together to share in their passion for knife-making. As with all small businesses, each person has official duties, combined with the random tasks that pop up. The beauty of that is for every knife sold, generally you will be introduced to several of the team as they help find your next (or first) stunning knife. Meet the current team below!
Ramon Elzinga | Co-FOUNDER
A knife lover even before we were stuck in the house & kitchen.
Ramon lost to Callum Hann in very early rounds of Masterchef and decided he'd concentrate on tools moreso than dishes.
Shannon Dolman | CO-FOUNDER
The Son of a blacksmith Shannon has always been comfortable stuck in the shed.
He's a bit hard to get a hold of as he usually has his sleeves up and head down tinkering with something... usually a knife (not always).
Joao Sundfeld | VP of Sharpening
Former Chef & Extreme Guitarist Joao brings the passion from the concert to the shed.
He is the best sharpener we have and has a will forever be improving the way we play with Resin. He is Brazilian!
STEVEN TUCKEY | VP of MARKETING
Another former chef turned jack-of-all trades and currently lumped with writing my own bio.
One of the perks of working for knife makers, I now have an unending supply of beautiful knives. Happy chef, happy life.
DAN QUINZI | VP of Finance
Our founders have their sleeves up so numbers is not their strength. Dan has helped resolve this and also give vastly improved vision of what we should be building - are we running out of Gyuto's? Dan is the one to answer this question.
Alejandro Carriel | VP of Digitography
Alejandro emerged from Chile and has been loitering in SA for some time.
He seems rather talented in capturing the imagery of a very hard to shoot piece of kitchen jewellry - the knife!
