Be Arsed

Gaz - Community Cutlery

“Be arsed about having good quality kit and be arsed about looking after it over the long run. Be arsed about the impact your choices make on the world.”

Gaz has a slogan. “Be arsed”.

Be arsed about having good quality kit and be arsed about looking after it over the long run. Be arsed about the impact your choices make on the world. 

He’s also bloody funny.

With his wife George he owns and runs ‘Community Cutlery’ in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. It’s one of those tiny gems, rich in quality products with zero tat. Full of kitchen knives, a wooden brush for all occasions, books and clever widgets that you didn’t even know existed. The place makes you want to get into some serious kitchen ritual activity and it wants you to have very sharp knives.

Like a cutler’s mullet half the shop is retail and the other a knife sharpening workshop. We were drawn there like moths to a flame. Ed went on a whetstone knife sharpening course last year and we now offer a free first sharpen on our kitchen knives here. Your knife will come back sharper than it came to you in the first place (and it was really sharp then).

Gaz is wearing sharp HebTroThreads. Our best selling, hard wearing GVNR16 jeans and the utilitarian Cargo Pants, both paired with our easy wearing Raglan Sweatshirts. There are also Ripstop Smock and Windbreaker in organic cotton.

No sweat style. No sweatshop products. Be arsed.
