Ladies Make Chef’s Knives, Both In Brooklyn

Ladies Make Chef’s Knives, Both In Brooklyn

In an article titled “Sisters Of Steel: Vermont Women Forge Success Making Handmade Kitchen Knives,” initially published on, a Gannett Company, and written by Melissa Pasanen, the story is of Moriah Cowles and Chelsea Miller, both incredibly 30 years old, both slender and both with dark hair. They also both grew up in Vermont with fathers who work with their hands, and now they both live in Brooklyn, where each has built a reputation for making kitchen knives. And neither knew about the other, until recently, yet they’ve yet to meet in person.bilde

According to the feature article, Chelsea grinds old horse hoof files into handmade knives at her family’s Peacham workshop, and Moriah took a blacksmithing course in North Carolina before forging her first knife from a railroad spike. See their complete story here.  For more quality household cutlery, click here.
