The concept and design of the VG10 series from Forged were inspired by the knife country par excellence: Japan. You can see this in the transition from the blade to the handle. This series is named after the steel used for the blade. The Japanese VG10 steel ensures a pleasant hardness of no less than 60 Rockwell.
The knives are forged in 5 layers, subtly providing the typical look as you see with damask knives. Sharpness and cutting comfort are guaranteed by these techniques. The knives have a special handle made of luxurious root wood and are supplied with a brown leather knife-sheath. The luxury gift packaging completes the picture.

Out of an enormous love for cooking and dining, in 2014 the idea was born to create a distinctive, attractive, high-quality but above all affordable knife range. A knife range that besides its functionalities would also be an extension of your kitchen, outdoor kitchen or of the user himself. Knives with which you can show your love for cooking and dining.
After coming into contact with a small but passionate knife factory that besides their traditional way of working also shared the same vision, the idea of a new knife brand took shape. In this factory, with its small workshop and enthusiastic knife-makers, each knife is still for the most part produced by hand in a traditional way. The workshop radiates passion for the craft; the heat, the smell and the orange glow of the fire, the hissing sound when the metal is cooled, but especially the forging of the knives works inspiring. This passion and craftsmanship, which you don’t normally see in the end result of a knife, was at the heart of Forged’s characteristic look that we wanted to create. And our name also derives from this.
The production of a Forged knife takes a lot of time, energy and patience: the knives are forged, shaped, hardened, ground, polished, washed and carefully packed by hand. Because of the forged look that is literally created by the hammer of the maker, every knife has a unique appearance. No knife is the same. And the idea that after the sale of a Forged knife, the user ‘handcrafts’ it by using, sharpening and treating it, honours the Japanese steel and thus the Japanese term wabi-sabi. This Japanese term stands for the beauty of an object that acquires its own character through years and intensive use. Every Forged knife, wherever it is used in the world, becomes even more unique after it is sold.
