Are your products 100% Canadian and Handmade in Toronto, Ontario like you say?
All materials we use are sourced right here in Canada. Our hardwoods are either harvest directly by us, or through donations, and local industry cast-offs. Our exotic woods are cast-offs and off-cuts from local sources, as are our steel sources. Any leather used is sourced as scrap from local leatherworks. Any Antler pieces used in our products are aquired as pieces that originate from naturaly dropped antlers from Canadian Deer, or Elk.
All of our products are manufactured 100% by hand by Stephen F. Fisher in Downtown Toronto.

Have a question we don't cover in the FAQ section? Contact us through our contact form on the CONTACTS page.
This knife rusts, what can I do about it?
As we state all through our website, all our knives are made with quality High Carbon Steel.
With the superior edge and easy sharpening capabilities of carbon steel, also comes the natural fact that this kind of steel does rust if not cared for...BUT DON'T WORRY, its completely normal. Many Chefs all over the world prefer carbon steel over all other knife steels, but you must maintain the blade with a few easy steps you can find in our care section, and almost anywhere else on the web... The knife will develop a patina, and perhaps some stains through use, we think of this as a mark of beauty and history of the knife's use .
Not to be rude to our amazing customers, but if its a stainless steel knife you're after, you're in the wrong place.
Will you refund my money if I am not happy?
In short, no. HH&H will not refund your purchase under any circumstances. We will however work with you to repair any defects caused in the making of the knife but be aware this does not include sharpening, cleaning, or other general maintenance. In some cases where the situation warrents we may decide to replace your knife with another knife of the same type. We don't want anyone to be unhappy with their knife, but please understand that you are buying a quality hand-made one of a kind knife, that is yours alone, there will be some subtile differences between all knives we make due to their handmade nature. These knives do require some care and maintenance, but nothing you can't handle!
We will not repair damage caused by innapropriate use such as pyring, hammering, bending, subjecting the knife to strength tests (although we belive our knives will do just fine) ... we will not repair damage caused by putting the knife in a dishwasher or leaving it outside in the rain..... please, love your knife!
