I was lucky enough to receive a Culter knife for my birthday and I have to say its one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever received. The model I got was the “Florence”. The first thing that struck me about the knife was how beautiful it was. Clearly Mike is an artist as well as a fine craftsman. All the components were so well integrated that you would think it was one solid piece even though obviously
it wasn’t. The handle has a wonderful satiny feel and sits in my hand beautifully. I love the use of brass for the bolster and rivets. It works really well with the lighter wood.
In terms of actually using the knife, I have to say that this is one of the best knives I’ve ever used. The weight is great, it has a nice heft to it. It slices and cuts precisely and cleanly. The blade keeps a sharp edge much longer than any knife I’ve ever had. A few swipes of the steel every few weeks seem to do
the trick. I’d recommend a Culter knife to anyone who appreciates finely made tools.

I was gifted two of Mike’s knives for Christmas and they are absolutely fantastic! We picked a general shape- the Florence- and gave Mike the creative liberty to pick the finishes, etc. What came out of it was two amazing knives that are the perfect marriage of beauty and functionality.   They are very comfortable to use and the blade is durable- the knife itself is a work of art that often gets noticed by others. Mike himself is great, and will answer any questions you might have. Overall, highly recommend Mike and his knives- there is clearly a pride in craftsmanship and it shows in every piece. Thanks Mike!

So, Ive been using this knife for a little over a month now and I have to say I am quite impressed with its performance. The steel is incredibly hard and durable and keeps an edge for a long time. The craftsmanship for the handle is amazing, love the attention to detail and is very durable considering the use it gets. I would definitely buy another knife from Mike when the time comes. Until then, this knife serves me perfectly. Keep up the good work Mike!

I found out about Culter knives from a chef (Mike hunter) who was on the Joe Rogan podcast. He had posted a custom knife he had commissioned by Mike on Instagram. I'm not a professional chef, but I do enjoy cooking and I enjoy using quality tools. I saw Mike had made a zebra stripped type of patina chef knife, and I immediately had Mike make one for me. The process was smooth and Mike created a beautiful 8" chef knife for me with a handle like no other! There are three types of woods and some copper mixed in there. I had him patina the blade as well. The knife is simply stunning! I would highly recommend having a custom knife made, versus an off the shelf, store bought knife for the same price. I forgot to mention, this knife is razor blade sharp and seems to keep its edge. I haven't had to sharpen it yet!

This knife has been an absolute joy to work with. Impeccable craftmanship, care and attention to detail make this something special. The handle feels like it was fitted to my hand, very comfortable and controllable, it has taken over as my main knife, easily handling anything I've thrown at it. Not only is it adaptable, it is gorgeous. Puts a smile on my face every time I look at it, not to mention every time I use it. Thanks to Mike for an incredible knife.

 I’m very particular with the weight of my knives. This blade has a nice heavy feel, well balanced, good size handle and a stellar look visually. It holds an edge very well and I haven’t had to take a steel to it in weeks. I was so pleased with the knife that I put in an a custom order for two more.

I love this knife for how it feels - strong and durable enough for home use but fine and light enough for professional kitchen work. I like the way it literally feels, like it's custom fitted to my hand, due to a well thought out handle design. It makes me feel in control every time I use it. I really love the contrast between how much finesse it has with how strong it feels, its easy to sharpen and fits well for every occasion.
It sounds weird, but it has become my best friend in the kitchen - it's always there and can handle anything I throw at it. It sharpens well, holds and edge and is easy to maintain.
