Discover Rare Hand-Hammered Handles
“These handles are handcrafted from start to finish at P.E. Guerin’s historic NYC foundry, established in 1892. The handles start with solid brass, which is then drilled and tapped on the lathe. They are then meticulously hand-hammered by a chaser, an artisan experienced in shaping metal in various textures with a hammer and specialty chisels, until the surface is dappled all over with sparkling facets. The handles are then polished to bring out a captivating shine and are joined with the foundation of the ONE collection.” -Martin Grubman, Vice President of P.E. Guerin
