Designed By You, Crafted By Us

The simplest way to create your handle is to choose your favourite colours and let us do the rest.

Download our guide to customising your G . F Smith paper handle and email us your preferred colour choices.

We’ll then send you some layouts to choose from and then turn your choice into an utterly unique handle.



Mix it up

You control the amount of detail required, and
we are always open to suggestions and new ideas.

You can incorporate veneers, choose between lateral and vertical patterns and specify every single sheet to be used.

Take a look at our Makers’ Choice Knives section for further inspiration.


Makers’ Choice Knives

The Fine Print

All paper changes tone when laminated, and while we have done our best to reflect this in our colour chart, there will always be some slight variation.

We like to use G . F Smith’s Colorplan paper, but you are welcome to provide us with your own if you prefer.

Due to the vagaries of the compression and shaping process, the topmost visible layer is not always guaranteed to be the one specified in the pattern.

If you would like to specify a complete pattern, then get in touch and we will provide you with all the dimensions and details you need.

Prices for our G . F Smith paper handles start from £100 plus the standard price of whichever knife you’ve chosen.
