Here’s what Mike had to say about his collaboration with Flint & Flame USA…
“After many years of trying every knife on the market and finding them lacking, I decided to make my own.
Using deer antlers for handles, I started making hunting knives using various blades. This created some very usable knives that worked well.
However, a chance conversation with the Knife masters at Flint & Flame, who make the worlds most useable and professional chefs knives, led to a development process that has taken 3 years and 15 prototypes.
This collaboration has led to the creation of Flint & Flame Outdoor. Initially starting with the Field Knife No.1 (GP), we will be introducing more knives over the coming months.”
