Sanj from The Quarterly got me together with Ben to shoot a piece for the magazine with the theme of journey. In this instance, the journey of craftsmanship. Ben from Blok knives was only too keen to get involved and was an absolute pleasure to work together on this one.
Its great to see someone who’s so passionate about what they do and taking the time to make something so beautiful and unique in this day and age. Safe to say, I’ll be placing myself an order for one of Ben’s knives sooner rather than later!!

“When I walk into work it just makes me smile, because I know I’m going to make a knife.”
It was a pleasure to photograph Ben in his workshop, a great character I’m sure you’ll agree. It was also great to have such beautiful products to take back to the studio and photograph. I hope to work with Ben again in the near future for sure!
