Tuffnell Custom Knives are handcrafted using high quality knife steel.
These knife steels hold a good edge and are durable. All knives are hollow ground freehand. All blades are cut on a band-saw and shaped to the desired design. Being handmade, these knives are unique in that no two knives are identical. A variety of material are used for the handles such as types of bone, stabilised woods, composites, pearl shell and paua shell. All knives are hardened and tempered in-house, using a furnace and tempering oven. This achieves the correct hardness of the knife blades using the Rockwell C scale aiming for a hardness of 58-60.
