Chelsea Miller, I met her at a loft party five years back. We spent many eves biking Brooklyn & hacking the human grid with the gang at Pedal Power NYC. Last summer she began selling a line of knives she creates using repurposed files stockpiled in a top secret Vermont location. A couple times a year she hauls a suitcases of mill bastards, rasps, woodchucks and tapers down to her Buswick Brooklyn workshop and works her magic on them, turning them into hand wrought one of a kind original knives.
A few weeks ago I dropped in on Chelsea to see her new shop and a few of the knives before they rushed out the door. She began selling her blades at the Brooklyn Flea last summer. One day we visited her tent to see the collection and shoot the breeze. Maybe the flea wasn’t the spot to sell a knife that costs more than the table in the booth one over but great for marketing, picking up a nice page in Saveur. Go Brooklyn magazine people! She’s making knives faster than the cuts on her hands can heal. All are hand wrought by Chelsea one of a kind knives with riveted hardwood handles. Check out her knives, get one with a matching cutting board. Do it while you can still say you got a Chelsea Miller Knife back when she made them all herself! You can sometimes find Chelsea at the Brooklyn Flea, if you don’t recognize her from the photo, look for the girl selling knives wearing bandaids not nailpolish.
