We discovered Canadian designer Geoffrey Lilge and his company OnOurTable via the cutting boards he created for Luce restaurant in Portland. Recently, we were happy to learn that OnOurTable has branched out: it now specializes in knife storage of the highest order. All pieces are made to order in Alberta and typically ship within two weeks.
