Welcome to Wellington Bladeworks, a maker of refined English custom knives. With a passion for rugged functionality and an uncompromising eye for detail, master craftsman Phil Siddell creates exquisite fixed blade and folding knives for the most discerning collectors and sportsmen.
Born of necessity over fifteen years ago Phil has, over time, developed a unique manifesto in answer to the question: What defines the ideal custom knife? Employing modern materials and marrying them to beautiful natural and composite materials, Wellington Bladeworks has developed a style that is reminiscent of the finest English shotgun and rifle makers.
As a devoted hunter and fisherman Phil is adamant that every knife that leaves the workshop must perform in demanding conditions out in the field; regardless of how fine it is. Phil’s approach to knife making is led by that oft quoted entreaty from William Morris to “have nothing…that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
