The Timeless Beauty of Ancient Trees: A Provenance Made Love Story

The Timeless Beauty of Ancient Trees: A Provenance Made Love Story

At Provenance Made, we hold a deep love and admiration for old growth forests. Their timeless beauty, endurance, and longevity inspire the creation of our handcrafted knives. These ancient trees and forests represent so much more than just trees; they embody serenity, spirituality, and a connection to the Earth that has stood for centuries.


When you walk into an old growth forest, you are immediately struck by the sense of peace and permanence that envelops you. The trees have withstood countless obstacles and challenges, enduring and persevering through the test of time. In a world where everything seems disposable and impermanent, old growth forests remind us of the value in stability and resilience.

The spirituality of these ancient trees is undeniable. With their massive trunks and expansive canopies, they have witnessed centuries of history and the ever-changing landscape of our planet. They have outlasted droughts, infestations, natural disasters, wars, and human development, standing tall as monuments to the enduring strength of nature.

As a brand, we believe in honoring the irreplaceable beauty and wisdom of old growth forests. They remind us of our responsibility to protect and preserve the environment, and to strive for a regenerative and sustainable way of life. Our handcrafted knives, made from reclaimed and responsibly sourced materials, serve as a symbol of our commitment to these values.


At the core of Provenance Made is a deep reverence for the natural world and the incredible stories it has to tell. Ancient trees have captivated our founder, Michael Broaddus, and his passion for their enduring spirit infuses each and every knife he creates. Our hope is that when you hold a Provenance Made knife, you can feel the essence of ancient trees and their timeless connection to our world.

We want you to be a part of this love story with ancient trees. When you choose our knives, you're not only investing in exceptional craftsmanship, but also contributing to the protection of the trees' ecosystems. To honor our commitment to the environment, we donate to 1% for the Planet, an organization dedicated to preserving the natural world and invaluable ecosystems. Together, we can appreciate and protect these remarkable natural treasures, ensuring their enchantment endures for generations to come.
