The convergence of art and utility is epitomized in this stunning vegetable cleaver by David Lisch. An intricate and other-worldly setting sun approaches the horizon above a hamon sea, the mosaic damascus contrasting the silky, hand-sanded W2 carbon steel that surrounds it. With gentle curves and beautiful lines from the tip through the integral bolster and along the sculpted, rare and striking koa burl handle, form and function are delivered hand in hand. Thin and wickedly sharp, the 145mm / 5.7" blade stands 74mm tall, ready to make efficient, and very enjoyable work of every ingredient that crosses its path. Inspired work by this Washington-based Master Bladesmith.
