Different DNA Chef 240mm
Joshua Prince, Rhode Island-based bladesmith, conjures both the imagination and intellection at once with patterns, material combinations, and creative depictions of concepts from the miniscule to the grandiose. While previous knives were born of cosmic dimensions, this knife's ethereal yet grounded damascus pattern of carbon and iron (and a few other ingredients) speaks to the complexity of the minute: a strand of DNA, or, as the case may be, Different DNA. A unique and beautiful asymmetrical handle of osage orange is comfortable in both right and left hands, shunning even the idea of any perceived mutual exclusivity found in nature. With extraordinary, functional art for the kitchen, Joshua makes us ponder the world around us, and within us, and we thank him.
