DON'T POKE YOUR EYE OUT.
We officially got our start in mid 2014 when Duncan scratched the itch to hand make a set of knives from raw materials—start to finish. So we cleared the backyard, built a sand pit and lit the first H&H forge. Been at it ever since. 1 Forge, 242 boxes of bandaids and god knows how many cups of Cafe Bustelo—we have found ourselves in a new studio with the drive and the eagerness to do more and more.
Horn & Heel is a North Carolina based company made up of Owner & Maker—Duncan Stephenson and longtime friend & Operations Manager—Luke Rayson. Just two dudes.
Duncan started H&H with all intention of making the kind of knives that last lifetimes. We both pride ourselves on the company's dedication to the unique, honest and collaborative experience that yields the type of product that we have trouble letting go of.
