who makes that thing it looks cool
My first foray into the world of hand forged damascus knives. I chose the legendary David Lisch who is one of the greats in the world of damascus. He's been doing a lot of research into the art of kitchen knife design and has been studying the likes of the greats we know so well. I commissioned this piece back last fall and the original design was not what I was looking for so I sent Mr. Lisch a stencil of the exact profile I wanted (Shigefusa, my favorite). David delivered his second attempt perfectly and the best part about it is that she functions just as well as she looks. David used a compound grind (convex/flat) to deliver a knife that falls though food with very little stiction if any at all. The knife itself is extremely light and features David's integral bolster and classic "bowie" design knife handle. The handle feels very natural/comfortable in a pinch grip.
Cutting Length: Just a hair over 250mm
Damascus: Mix of 1080, 1075 and 15n20
Handle: Koa with a stainless steel domed pin
Thanks for looking.
What a awsome looking blade Pete!
Hey Pete nice petty you got there! How is the profile? Too much belly isn't it?
… and beautiful Lisch of course. Gorgeous knife.
That's a nice looking pattern and quite awesome integral bolster, Pete.
