Paddy Smyth, owner of Smyth Handmade Knives, worked for a number of years as a chef and a trained butcher. Having a keen interest in hunting, fishing and camping, he has used knives for most of his life. With this true understanding, Paddy has honed his skills as a knife maker through sheer interest and passion for the art. Each knife is uniquely crafted with meticulous attention to detail; the end user always in mind. Paddy can customise a piece to suit your needs, using your preferred materials to create the final bespoke piece. Smyth Knives are members of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and one of only a handful of knife makers in Ireland.
