The February issue of Town & Style features our very own Nate Bonner!
No kitchen would be complete without a set of sharp knives for all that chopping, mincing and julienning. And it’s a good bet no one loves the ubiquitous cooking tool more than Nate Bonner, a native St. Louisan who spends his days handcrafting knives with beautiful handles.
After years as a professional chef, including stints at Viking Culinary School and Chaumette Vineyards, Bonner founded NHB KnifeWorks in 2012. He says he found himself constantly tweaking his chef’s knives in an attempt to suit his preferences. His fascination with knives started as a young child, when his grandfather gave him a folding knife with a spoon and fork. “I ate every meal with it for a month,” Bonner says. “I love the history of knives, because you’re basically tracing back to the dawn of making records and people writing on walls with blades.”
