Darren Chard - Knife Reviews


Darren is a fantastic part-time maker with a keen eye and strong attention to detail. He spends a lot of time on each peice he makes fixing the small things that many makers often miss. His peices are highly sought after and not often available on the secondary market.

Darren Chard Mokume Damascus Wharncliffe

Here I have another peice by Canadian Knifemaker Darren Chard. I still consider Darren one of the best least known knifemakers out there. Everything that comes out of his shop is perfect. His fit and finish is among the best, bar none. He is also always up to a challenge, and creates knives because he enjoys it, not because it is profitable.

This is the first knife I bought from Darren, and started me on my road to collecting his knives. Darren was a member of the CKG at the time and I had found out about him on the CKG website.

I have always loved Darren’s knives. I own several of them and want to keep adding to the collection, but it is unfortunate that he is no longer with the CKG as it is harder for me to get one of his knives now. The last one I got from him was from the 2006 CKG show, and he swapped out the thumbstuds for me to add a opal inlayed one.
