Wita Andreia is a very talented artist from Portugal who specializes in Japanese style ink drawings. Working with ink is her way of calming the mind and finding inner peace. As a knife maker, I am honored to be able to use her artwork on my knives. Especially since I know that Wita Andreia is a history scholar specializing in Japan. Our philosophies are a perfect match.

IP Knives - Inperferctly Perfect knives

Perfect knives are made by robots in factories, they are perfect in every way. A legion of designers have used their computers to calculate the ultimate perfect knife. Robots are making thousands of that same blade.

BUT IT HAS NO SOUL, NO PERSONALITY.

When you buy an iPKnife, you buy a piece from me, Patrick Pevernagie, the creator. I lost sleep over the design, made countless drawings, tried different approaches, just to get it right. I felt the properties of the steel change as it slowly turned into a blade. I gave it a soul. You will keep giving it soul by using it.

My focus is on quality, not quantity.

An iPKnife is made to last a lifetime and even longer. It is something you will be proud to pass on to your children as it has become a part of you. Your use determines its appearance, its scars.

Maybe something for you too?
