Fingal Ferguson hand made knives
I was born and raised on our farm in Gubbeen, in West Cork, Ireland.
For as far back as I can remember, I have had a passion for knives. At a young age, I inherited my uncle's collection of knives – a beautiful selection from his travels around the world. Growing up on the farm, I learned that for every job there was a knife, and a good, solid knife was always an essential tool. I've now been a butcher for the past 18 years, and again, knives play a vital role in my working life!
All my life I've been surrounded by artists and artisans, and thanks to them I came to understand that importance of quality in one's work is always appreciated. The more so when tools like knives are designed with functionality as the guiding factor. My aim, as a knife-maker, is to make knives that work for the purpose and the user, are comfortable and sharp, and are also pleasing to the eye.
Some of these knives can take days to develop, and I hope that the care and passion I put into each and every single piece will show.
