1803 Chef’s Knife


The 1803 Chefs’ Knife is an impressive and sophisticated multi-purpose utility blade that is the go-to-tool for every serious cook. With an impressive 20cm hand-forged carbon steel blade, it performs virtually all kitchen tasks with ease including mincing, slicing, chopping vegetables, slicing meat, and disjointing large bone-in cuts.

Our rustic hand-forged carbon steel blade has a full tang through the length of the knife handle to provide superior stability, balance and weight. It is then set between two formed scales of red deer antler and fixed with three small brass nails. Antler feels good in the hand, while also providing additional grip when wet – this is why antler handled knives are preferred by many of the world’s great chefs.

1803 knives are unique, celebrating the character of our natural antler and the traditional forging process with a distinctly Australian aesthetic. We choose to forge our blades with carbon steel as it has superior hardness and strength, which makes it easier to sharpen and ensures a longer life. Every 1803 knife is ruggedly handsome and has rare provenance that represents authentic Australian luxury.

Every 1803 Chef’s Knife is presented in a rustic leather knife wrap.
No two 1803 Chef’s knives are the same, and that is exactly how it should be.
Simple pleasures.
Timeless treasures.

All 1803 packaging is made using natural materials and is designed to be reused.
