Homey's, Schiffmacher, Steak Knife Set.
A set of 4 robust steak knives inspired by Corsican Shepherd's knives. Each knife has a unique tattoo, designed by Henk Schiffmacher himself, with a recurring Niho Mano (shark teeth) pattern. The knives have a razor-sharp stainless steel blade, a burr walnut handle and are delivered in a luxury gift box.
At a young age, butcher’s son Henk Schiffmacher learned to appreciate a good, sturdy knife. “Back in the old days, you had your own knife. You carried it on you for your whole life and you used it for literally everything. It was yours. I want to bring back this feeling”. In this exclusive set, Henk’s passion for the butcher’s trade, tattoos, and cuisine come together.
Corsica has a long agricultural history. Life at the farm was tough and people had to rely on their tools. The Shepherd’s Knife was the knife among farmers and is, nowadays, considered paternal heritage. On his 10th birthday, a boy receives his first knife from his father. This marks his transition to adulthood. A tradition passed on from generation to generation.
The set consists of four robust steak knives, each with a unique and recognizable pattern. Natural wood provides an authentic appearance – no knife is the same. To embrace this authenticity, each knife has its own Polynesian inspired tattoo designed by Henk Schiffmacher himself. Four different tattoos but each knife has a set of shark teeth in its sharp blade.
“Tattoos find their origins in Polynesia. The Polynesians wear their tattoos symbolically. One of these tattoos is the niho mano, or shark teeth. According to the Polynesians, sharks are divine ancestors and symbolize strength. Sharks use their teeth to easily tear through their prey. The sharp steak knives embody this beautiful symbolism, as they cut right through the meat”.
