Tashi Bharucha didn’t start as a knifemaker. A graphic designer by trade, he grew up with an affinity for precise, highly finished objects. Early on, that manifested itself in the form of knives—specifically Spyderco knives, on which he spent much of his disposable income. But it wasn’t until he started designing knives himself that he took such a liking to them. Taking a more broad approach to knife design than many other makers, Bharucha is renowned for his ability to pair wide, functional blades with slender, ergonomic handles. His long list of collaborations reads like a who’s who of knifemaking legends, including names like Bob Terzuola, Peter Carey, Jens Anso, Alan Elishewitz, Tom Mayo, Lee Williams, and many more.
