Ron Hock - Blades & Knives

Ron Hock - Blades & Knives

Hock Tools is a small metalworking cottage industry located in the middle of Mendocino's (California) renowned woodworking enclave. For seventeen years all Ron Hocks tools had been handcrafted to satisfy the demands of the most discriminating professional. Shaping, beveling, and slotting was done by hand-grinding and precision machining on pre-digital machinery. But they grew so much in the late nineties that they started "outsourcing" some of the blades to a high-precision factory in France. Many of their standard replacement blades and kitchen knife blades items are being cut out with a laser and ground flat after hardening. You may notice the change from the black oxide surface that has identified his blades for so long to a bright, shiny (and flat) surface on the new ones. Alloy and hardness specifications remain the same. They still focus on the intended use of the item and work to facilitate that end. The extra thickness of their blades offers superior stability, precise adjustment, and easier honing.
