Middleton Made Knives is a new venture by bladesmith Quintin Middleton based in Saint Stephen, South Carolina - a small town outside of historic Charleston. Quintin's simple statement, "Every great chef needs a great knife at a great price" is exemplified in these two offerings. Using high carbon steel, each knife is custom made to the exact specifications requested by each customer. For DEAN & DELUCA Quintin has crafted an 8" Chefs Knife and a Pairing Knife, both essentials in every chefs knife roll and kitchen alike. Like a fine watch, a fine knife for Father's Day is a gift to be cherished.
