 "Every once in a while, a knife maker comes along with a sharp instinct for blade design. Zack and his team at Monolith Knives seem to evoke that. As a working chef, I appreciate that."

"When I first meet the guys from Monolith, I knew I was in the right place to custom design my knife. Their knowledge for the right material to use and forging craftsmanship was second to none and the result is fantastic. The end product far outweighs my expectation and with a robust handling and razor sharp blade it makes for an every day tool in my kitchen. Looking forward to my next collaboration with Zack and the team at Monolith."

"I purchased a San Mai chef knife from Monolith Knives and after using it daily in my kitchen for a few months I decided I needed to expand my collection. I received another beautiful knife from Zack... the sharpest bread knife I've ever used. I plan to continue ordering knives from Monolith Knives for their excellent quality, attention to detail and customer service."

"Zack makes pure artistic awesomeness. Knives made at Monolith are elegant, utilitarian and bad-to-the-bone!"
