ARTISTIC WOODWORK WITH SOUL
Over many years, John studied woodworking and applied his artistic background, passion, and skills to building specialty cabinetry, toys, breadboards, and furniture. He enrolled in many courses over the years to enhance his woodworking skills and became professionally involved in fine woodworking in 1990.
We are a husband-and-wife team that has gardened sustainably together for over twenty years. In 2008, we founded Hawaiian B Natural Farms in Honokaa to share our passion for high-quality, naturally produced food with our neighbors on the Hamakua Coast and with the greater Hawaiian community.

Aloha from Hawaii, the “Big Island”
We are a small family farm on the windward (east side) of the “Big Island” of Hawaii. Our flock of Romneys are well suited for wet climates and are fine producers of breed stock, wool and meat. Join us for a farm tour to see what life is like for our wool growing sheep and their pasture partners.
Artisan smoked salt and rubs
My blades are heat treated by one of the best heat treating companies in the U.S. who also services aerospace, military and nuclear industry. Each blade is hardened to the specific hardness I assign to bring out the best performance out of a knife. In order to eliminate the possibility of overheating and subsequent loss of steel integrity I grind my blades using advanced water cooling system. To go a step further I hand sharpen each knife on Japanese wet stones to attain the best cutting edge possible.
Most of my knives have convex or convex-chisel grind. Convex grind is rather difficult to achieve and not often seen in commercially available knives. Convex grind has advantages over other bevel geometry by being a better slicer, having less tendency to bind to the material, having a stronger edge, as well as being relatively easy to sharpen. And for kitchen knives, convex grind is ideal because the food has less tendency to stick to the blade.
Ergonomic handles are contoured for comfort, and to accommodate holding positions specific to each blade.
Innovative, FRESH & crafted with aloha.
Food is the heart and soul of culture and family, especially here in Hawai'i. It is our mission to embrace sustainability, support local purveyors and to create delicious food!
