I handcraft every single knife with the highest attention to detail. They are made to last, so much so that I guarantee them for life. However, beyond looking gorgeous, they are tools meant to be used. As I preach, "a knife is only as good as its heat treat.” That means a lot of knives are not properly heat treated, making them less than ideal tools. The heat treat is the most important thing on a knife, it determines how easily it will break, how long it will hold an edge, and even how sharp it will be.
Tindall Knives has developed its signature Tindall Knives Heat Treat (TKHT) of various steels over the last 8 years. I use completely proprietary methods that are not "industry standards". I end up with harder hardness and higher toughness and resilience, which means hardness without brittleness, and knives that hold a wicked edge. What that means for my customers is an investment in knives they can trust. The results speak for themselves.
