In the Workshop Crafting Knives with @workerman
To see more photos and videos from Workerman’s knife forging process, follow @workerman on Instagram.
When Adam Brackney (@workerman) shared a photo of his first hand-crafted knife, created as a gift for his father, the response was immediate and encouraging. “Lots of positive comments,” says Adam, “and more importantly… people wanting one for themselves.”
Adam actually began his career as a graphic designer, but found the work unfulfilling. “I developed an itch to create things with my hands instead of a mouse and keyboard,” he explains. After honing his skills on other wooden items, Adam made his first knife six months ago—and it’s been hard for him to keep up with demand since.
Through Instagram, Adam hopes to show the care and attention he gives to his work. “Workerman is a one-man operation. My work is very visual, so sharing the crafting process and finished products is instrumental.”
