Paddy Smyth is an extremely talented custom knife maker in Ireland. Having been a chef, trained as a butcher, and with interests in hunting, fishing, and camping, knives have always been his constant companions. He is a self taught bladesmith and has an eye for detail which shows through in the design and functionality of each knife he makes. He has experience in using various blade steels, natural handle materials, and even leather work for his hand made sheaths. Whenever possible, he uses Irish sourced materials including ancient Irish Bog woods, some of which are thousands of years old. As each knife is completely hand made, no two are identical. When you purchase a Smyth knife, you will receive a unique hand crafted Irish knife.
Smyth Knives is a current member of the Design and Craft Council of Ireland and is one of only a handful of knife makers in Ireland. If all that wasn't enough, Paddy and Smyth knives were recently featured in Blade Magazine.
