Situated in North Melbourne’s Coburg, inside a generic grey block of a building aptly named Space Tank Studio, is the industrial work place for the much coveted Cut Throat Knives. Bladesmith and founder Aidan Mackinnon creates high carbon or stainless, kitchen and cheese knives with the goal in mind of enhancing kitchen experiences all over the world. In addition to the range of awe inspiring blades, is the Cut Throat Block, a wooden ‘end grain’ chopping block the team refers to as the knives’ partner in crime. Opt for the classic 8 inch Chef’s knife, the kitchen’s Jack of all trades, or perhaps for bigger jobs and some carving, go for the 9 and a half inch Sabatier. A handmade kangaroo Leather Chef’s Roll is also worth considering, to protect your handcrafted new blade while it rests.
