Description: Washington knifemaker, Andrea Lisch is both a bladesmith and a blacksmith. She has worked alongside her husband, Mastersmith David Lisch in both these roles for many years. Her skill in design and bladesmithing clearly shows through on this elegant chef's utility knife.
This slicing knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks in the kitchen. From slicing tomatoes to mincing shallots, this slicing knife will make the job an easy task. The slender blade combines control and precision.
Andrea began forging this integral knife beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The bold, high contrast laddered W's pattern is immediately captivating and draws attention from a distance. By forging closely to shape, she ensures optimal grain structure for a keen, long lasting edge. The blade is beautifully thin with a nice distal taper for clean, perfect cuts. The bolster is fully integral to the blade, with the damascus pattern moving seamlessly from bolster to blade. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith.
The handle is formed from stabilized presentation grade maple burl. It is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip - swelling at the palm, moving into a slimmer waist, and swelling again at the end of the handle. The stabilized wood will hold up beautifully to hard use, though this knife would feel at home in most any collection. Alternating black fiber and nickel silver spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes in the kitchen.
Exceptional work throughout!
