Forget Global, Suisin Inox, and Zwilling. For a Charleston chef or foodie, the knife to have is a Middleton Made one.

Quintin Middleton is a 25-year-old artisan from Alvin, S.C., whose love for blades was awakened as a child by Conan the Barbarian.

Photographer Jonathan Stout has put together a fascinating video of the artisan at work, crafting blades from chunks of steel. Check it out, and then head to his Facebook page and put in your order.
