Legendary Bob Kramer Knives Coveted by the Professionals

Created by Master Bladesmith Bob Kramer with legendary knifemaker Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Bob Kramer knives fuse iconic design, handcrafted quality and unmatched performance with the comfort and versatility required by any modern chef. Kramer has a long, rich history forging premium American knives and is largely considered to be one of the best bladesmiths in the world. He first began selling his cutting-edge creations from his knife shop in Seattle and now works from his studio in Bellingham, Washington, where he creates functional works of art as one of the few Master Bladesmiths in the world to specialize in kitchen cutlery.
