After backing Allday Good’s Kickstarter campaign earlier in the year, look what arrived in the post today.

Produced in the UK (Sheffield & Hackney), this version of the Allday knife has had both its blade and handle produced from scrap material – a savvy way to reuse items destined for landfill. Previous releases of Allday knives had the blade production in Sakai, Japan along with scrap plastic for their handle. I particularly like the look of this knife — the contrast of the blade with the marbled look to the handle. Looking forward to using this!
