Forged brand - out of love for cooking and dining
The idea to create a brand that would offer a distinctive, attractive, high-quality but above all affordable knife range and to combine it with the Japanese tradition of knife forging was born in Netherlands in 2014.
In 2015 the Forged brand was launched with the first two knife ranges: Brute and Intense. Many chefs and amateur cooks loved the quality and the style of Forged knives and soon several new collections and new types of knives followed. Since 2021, Forged brand has been offering 6 different ranges – Katai, Olive, Sebra, VG10, Brute and Intense (you can read more about them HERE), each with its own characteristic, forged look and unique handle design. All Forged knives are marked with the Forged logo that is stamped into every knife.
But how are Forged knives made?
The idea behind the creation of Forged knives was to manufacture them in a traditional way. Forging is used to strengthen and unify the blade and high-quality forging by hand strengthens the knife even several times. Forged blades will not break easily as after appropriate heat treatment, they gain high resistance and durability.
So the founders of the Forged brand decided to contact a small but passionate knife factory with enthusiastic knife-makers, who produce each knife by hand in a traditional way. Their passion for knives and craftsmanship lies at the heart of Forged’s name, quality and characteristic look that is easily recognised.
