Learn more about wholesale hand-forged knives
Hand-forged knives are a favorite among chefs and cooks. They have some sort of a rustic and aesthetically pleasing feeling that’s great for sales. Hand-forged knives feature:
- Great edge retention
However, consider that the process of manufacturing these knives is labor-intensive and more expensive. As a result, they typically cost more than machine-stamped knives.
When choosing kitchen knives such as a chef knife to resell, you’ll have two main options – forged blades or machine-stamped ones. These two terms refer to the differences in the manufacturing process.
Hand-forged knives are made of a single steel bar which a craftsman heats up and then pounds into the desired shape. On the other hand, machine-stamped kitchen knives are cut out of a steel sheet, and then honed and heated for strength.
Forged knives typically have a full tang which makes them more durable, and they’re heavier than stamped knives. And, generally speaking, forged blades are tougher and known for holding their edge sharp for longer.
Some of the best suppliers for hand-forged knives in China can be found in Yangjiang and Longquan. These two cities have the largest industry for forged knives and craftsmanship, so many manufacturers are located there.
In our experience, it’s more than worth it!
China is a hub for knife manufacturers, especially places like Yangjiang and Longquan. Here, we can find the best product quality and variety for any budget.
However, note that buying from China also has challenges like finding the right suppliers and product quality standards. Make sure you always check the supplier’s background and order a sample before you place a bulk order.

How a hand-forged knife comes into being
In the past, hand-forged knives rely heavily on the blacksmith’s instincts and experience. Today, these knives are still produced by hand but with the help of modern technologies. A more streamlined process means less time, less money, and knives with more consistent performance.
What hasn’t changed is that each knife has passed through the good eyes and thoughtful hands of a trained specialist, just as it has in the old days.
