Kydex Sheath

NOTE K-tip option available on request


Each knife comes with a Kydex Sheath. As standard I match available stock to the colour to the cord and generally use military colours. If you would like a particular colour please make note when placing your order.


Each order will have a minimum eight week lead time. This could be longer during Covid-19 due to availability and/or freight times of materials and consumables.

Also due to Covid-19, as of 30 July 2020 shipping times will be longer than usual. I ship via Australia Post Parcel Service which includes tracking. I also fully insure for the total cost of goods as well as request a signature on delivery.

The all encompassing Gaia Kitchen Series kicks off with the Euro Cook’s Knife and Parer, both designed as great all rounders for home use. I’ve also designed a K-Tip for those wanting a little more slice than dice.

Using 1/4 inch stock is something hardly any knife makers would consider for a kitchen knife. I’ve always been partial to thin handles and don’t see why handles with axe-like proportions seem to be all the rage. I also love the idea of integral knives – the minimalist decadence of one complete piece of steel is simply too irresistible on a number of levels.

I have had a number of Chefs and Cooks handle the Gaia and the response has been very positive. With it’s one piece construction, weight has been the only issue which pushed me to incorporate an S-grind, an extra step on top of the standard full flat grind. The S-grind removes weight making it comparable to a standard kitchen knife, and more importantly aids in food release. The full flat grind is for those who prefer some heft.
