Taking it up a level...

" The Rolls Royce of leather working knives " 


 "This pattern knife looks and feels incredible and it's such a joy to work with it! 

Cavalier Goods Co

"I bought this knife from CHARTERMADE almost 3 years ago and still love using it.  It was the first big investment I made as a leatherworker and totally worth it.  Previous to this I was using substandard blades and had a few painful accidents and ruined work.  With this knife however, the ergonomics and razor sharpness means I've never struggled or slipped."


"This knife is an absolute beast, a must have in your leather arsenal."


I recently got my Chartermade Skiving Knife.  It makes a huge difference having a SHARP knife.  This knife is extremely sharp, the sharpest knife I own.  As you said, much safer, more control, and I can actually make a decent skive.  Thank You!

Knife and Sheaths

Thank you for increasing the quality and capabilities of leather workers the world over. Can never say enough about the joy I get laying this knife into leather... your craftmanship is impeccable.


We are a Husband and Wife Team that together make the heart of Chartermade.  Each Chartermade Knife is handmade. From designing to finishing each hand crafted piece is created from the Artisanal Hands of Terrick.  This process takes time but the end results are worth the effort and patience.  We  are so enormously grateful for all the support we have recieved.  As soon as knives are available they are soon sold out.  We will be loading new knives on the 15th of each month, and then again at the end of each month

 Thank you for your patience and continued support, we do so appreciate it. Thank you for supporting our work and artistry.  

Handmade is FOREVER ... not just for now.

We love making tools that inspire creation.  Tools that work well, feel  great and inspire you in your own craft and design. 

As a husband and wife team we take pride in being able to connect with artisans from around the world and share in their journey of courage and creation.  Recently we have made a few of these gorgeous bone folders and are excited to share them with you.  Made from Curly Maple, each of these bone folders have been individually stabilized, cut, shaped and polished to a luxurious finish.  



About Chartermade

Made by Hand...with Pride

Chartermade is more than just a brand.  The name Chartermade came about from the combination of my wife's name Charlene and my name Terrick. 

Each Knife in the Chartermade workshop is hand crafted from start to finish.  I pride myself in the quality and beauty of the tools I use, and love when tools make creating easier and enjoyable.  It is with this in mind that I created the Chartermade Leather knife Range.  I want to bring elegance, finesse and most importantly, function to my fellow leather artisans. 

We are excited to have you here to share the journey and embrace the courage to create.
