Patrick Kelly, Eclipse Knives — Gyuto Knife with Hexagonal Rosewood Handle
Patrick Kelly is a multidisciplinary artist and craftsman based in Melbourne, Australia.
Trading as Eclipse Knives since 2017, Patrick crafts Japanese inspired kitchen knives with a distinctly rustic Australian feel. Combining traditional Japanese knife profiles and techniques with locally sourced Australian hardwoods for the handles and sayas (sheaths), each knife is designed to perform to the highest standard.

Every knife comes with its own custom made saya (sheath).
