“A man who works with his hands is a labourer; a man who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman; a man who works with his hands, head and heart is an artist”

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am Tim Chilcott and I am a designer and bladesmith. I have spent 40 years as a craftsman, formerly as a silversmith and latterly making knives. I am proud of my meticulous eye for detail and range of skills that my time as a silversmith brought me but believe I have found my true vocation – making excellent tools for talented craftspeople and outdoorsmen and women.

When you look through the various pages you will discover the items I have for sale in stock; items you will be able to order as bespoke versions and a Gallery of past work and commissions that I have undertaken.
