Schmidt Brothers

Forging new territory in the traditionally stuffy world of cutlery, the New York-based Schmidt Brothers designed new knife collections exclusively for west elm MARKET. Precision-sharp stainless steel blades more than cut it in the kitchen, while the patented Schmidt Brothers Curve™ provides a space for your forefinger to rest and guide the knife for greater control.

Jordan and Jared come from a long line of restaurant owners and farmers.
