Paul Moore

"Quality on all fronts. Following a recommendation, i contacted Alex to discuss some knives for both my new kitchen and also for the design and delivery of some bespoke knives as a gift. The service and knives provided were first class. I don't go anywhere else now and highly recommend APOSL for all your knives and associated products."

"Ordered a knife for Christmas last year and we got a beautiful product! The guys etched snowflakes onto the knife and even put in a Christmas card for me and my boyfriend. It's nice to know businesses still go the extra mile. Would 100% recommend."
