Folding knives are a true test of a smith's skill as a machinist and designer. Joseph Rodgers and Sons have been building knives in Sheffield, England, for over 300 years - they are a true work of edged inspiration.

Limited edition of 100 pieces, each knife is individually numbered and hand made by some of the worlds best knife makers. 

Their previous clients include the British Army and Royal Family, so when thinking about designing the world’s first Cold Water Surf Knife, we naturally decided to work with the best. 

Use it. Take good care of it. Hand it down. 

Made in Sheffield. 

 The boring stuff….By submitting an entry the participant accepts that their image will be used by Finisterre. Images will always be credited.  No cash or other prize alternatives available.
