Farrier Tools Turned into Chef Knives

Once it was a rasp that shaved horse hooves on Chelsea Miller’s family farm in Vermont. Now it’s a knife for an elite kitchen.

Chelsea Miller makes knives. Her materials are the old tools and reclaimed wood from her father’s home workshop. It’s a neat take on repurposing. But the process is than just that.

As this endearing video about her work explains, it’s about connecting with her father and the traditions of her family. Making these knives is a way of carrying the past into the future. It’s a sentiment that I recognize immediately. When I visit my parents, I work with my father as much as I can, building and repairing, learning new skills, and simply being with him as time slowly runs out.
