Pitmaster X enters into exclusive partnership with Forged 639 636 Marketing

From June 2022, Roel Westra, better known as Pitmaster X, will have an exclusive partnership with Forged.

The grill master, who has about 560,000 followers on YouTube from all over the world, will from then on only use handmade Forged knives from the Brute and Sebra series. The Forged Churrasco concept will also be featured, as well as the magnetic blocks of Style de Vie.

 

Shared passion for outdoor cooking

Pitmaster X and Forged share a love for outdoor cooking and a common passion for enjoying good meat, good tools and good company.

Of course, Forged is the perfect match. Not only due to the functionality of the Forged knives, but also due to the robust, sturdy appearance of the brand, which fits in perfectly with the world of fire and barbecuing.

 

We see you online!

Westra has worked with Forged before. Earlier this year, the successful content creator made videos using the Churrasco concept and the Flambadou. The videos attracted tens of thousands of viewers. In the coming period, Forged and Pitmaster X hope to inspire many outdoor cooks. We’ll see you online!

New to Forged!

We are proud to announce that we have been able to add some new products to the current collection: the Sebra Carving Fork, the Sebra Asian Cleaver and a Leather Cover Asian Cleaver.

The knifes are made of 440C Japanese steel with a hardness of 58 Rockwell. Protecting, carrying and maintaining knives is important to preserve it. To have an extra contribution to this, loose leather covers have been developed for, among other things, the Asian Cleaver. A real eye-catcher!

In 2022, Forged will be featured in the most watched BBQ program on TV again: BBQ Street on 24Kitchen. With more than 400,000 viewers per week, BBQ Street was able to captivate outdoor cooking in the Netherlands in 2021 with the best trends, recipes and the most beautiful tools from Forged. This year, five different grill masters, including Jord Althuizen and Peter de Clercq, will once again use Forged knives. Every grill master will use a different Forged series so every product is covered. Forged Churrasco and the Flambadou will also get a lot of attention in this new season.

Just like last year, the episodes will be broadcasted on both 24Kitchen (NL) and VTM (BE). In total, more than 71 episodes are broadcast throughout the year. With this, BBQ Street wants to show that barbecuing is not just a summer activity. There are also plans to broadcast BBQ Street in Germany with German chefs, allowing Forged to make ever greater strides across the border.
