Who is Kitchen Knife King?

My name is Mark and I’m the guy behind Kitchen Knife King, I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m not really a king but just an appreciator of great kitchen knives from around the world. So if you were hoping to meet a real king of knives I’m sorry to burst your bubble, I’m just an average chap who wears a baseball cap, not a crown.

I’ve worn many hats over the years, starting off as a pot washer in a busy hotel in my early teens, to a full-time commis chef after leaving culinary school, and then moving to bar restaurant management, which has taken me around the globe.

On this kitchen knife blog, I’ll take you by the hand and lift the lid off kitchen knives with topics covering everything from how they’re made, how to keep them in tip-top shape, and which knives are the best choice for various food prep tasks around the kitchen.
