Chelsea grew up in rural Vermont, homeschooled and half-wild by modern standards. Her parents lived simply, raising her to recognize the abundance inherent in one’s surroundings – tapping maple trees, raising bees, eating food they’d grown themselves.

 

As a young adult, she pursued theatre in NYC, performing both on-stage and in films. But when her father fell ill, Chelsea made the difficult decision to return home and care for him – and it was then that she found her calling.

Working through her father’s illness, Chelsea learned the tools of his trades (carpentry and blacksmithing). He taught her metallurgy, woodworking – perhaps most of all, he gave her the confidence and space to make mistakes – and keep going.

 

Her knives are feats of hard work and perseverance, of course – but also lay testament to Chelsea’s own path of self-exploration, metamorphosis and serenity in the face of unknowns.

 

Much like her handcrafted cutlery, Chelsea follows a path that is by neither accident nor design. In a workshop where showering sparks, metallic dust and a smoky aroma ignite creativity, she connects with her craft while the materials guide the journey.

Chelsea's unique blades are the product of years spent honing her skills, never sacrificing her organic approach of allowing the materials to guide the design.
