The better part of a decade ago, we published a piece on The Best Kickstarter Pens that included the incredibly impressive EiMIM Pen from as-of-yet-unknown master maker Will Hodges. To this day, we still love and use that pen on a regular basis, but Hodges has gone on to create an empire based on impeccable creations in the worlds of pens and blades. The quest continued with indestructible pens like the Tactile Turn Glider and the Mover & Shaker, along with the Tactile Turn Pruner Razor Handle, and eventually the Tactile Knife Rockwall Folder (still one of our favorite pocket folders). Hodges and the Tactile brands are back with the one thing that was missing from our everyday use schedules–a quality chef’s knife. Feast your eyes on the Tactile Knife Co. 8″ Chef Knife. This Santoku-style knife is entirely Made in the USA in Tactile’s Texas-based machine shop using 14C28N blade steel with a 60HRC hardness and a 17-degree sharpening angle that’s mated with the premium material Richlite that’s easy to grip, use, contoured for your hands, food-safe, and won’t cause fatigue. With an estimated delivery of Dec 2021, this is the perfect gift for all your friends and family.
