Joey Berry is one of the most skilled apprentices of the Fiddleback Forge Apprentice Program, according to Andy himself. Joey's company, J.B. Knifeworks, makes knives that are unlike anything you'll see from the Fiddleback Forge side of the shop. While Joey does make some outdoor knives, as you can see, his focus is on creating great knives for the kitchen.
Using a variety of steels from high carbon to various types of stainless steels, J.B. Knifeworks crafts some of the thinnest, strongest blades available for the kitchen...integrated with perfectly shaped and detailed handles that are also fantastic in the ergonomics department. Joey's work is full of subtle details like the contour around fingers in the most common grips. The handles become one with the hand that holds them while the blade moves materials effortlessly while you focus on the task at hand with a tool that becomes an extension of your creative efforts on the cutting board.
Here are his most recent knives. Follow instructions below to pick one up before he gets famous and prices skyrocket with demand!

I have been looking at the kitchen knives from JB Knifeworks. I read where Fiddleback Forge doesn’t do commissioned knife work. Does Joey Berry? I would like to give my wife a custom set of kitchen cutlery. I would buy the various knives individually but was wanting a set with same handle design.
