Jake Cleland, Knifemaker. Handmade knives and swords from the Isle of Skye.

I run a small custom knife business on the Isle of Skye in the North-West Highlands of Scotland. I began learning the craft from my father while still at school, and have since learnt from some amazing knifemakers worldwide.

My blades are hand-forged, specialising in differential clay-tempering to produce the combination of toughness and flexibility that is made visible in the distinctive hamon
