Description: Journeyman smith David Lisch is an knifemaker located in Seattle, WA. David has been focusing increasingly more attention on chef's knives and he is clearly becoming a maker to watch in this area. As well as being a bladesmith, David is a renowned blacksmith and teacher of knifemaking at the Studio 4 school, which he runs. David's control over damascus, as shown in this dramatic chef's knife, is amazing. His skill produces patterns that are uncompromisingly clean and controlled.
David created this complex damascus and forged the blade to shape from 15N20, 1080, and 1075 steels. The blade and bolster are all made from one solid piece of damascus. Though integral knives are regularly done in production work, creating an integral bolster in a custom setting is extremely difficult and shows the maker's skill at its best.
The handle is formed from curly koa. The workmanship is beautiful, and the wood chosen is gorgeous! The contrast between the light and dark aspects and the striations are stunning. Contours ensure a comfortable and safe grip. Alternating silicon bronze and black G10 spacers set between the handle and integral bolster assist the wood to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. By using stabilized woods, Lisch ensures the knife will hold up well to the high demands of either a professional or home kitchen.
A gorgeous piece built for serious use, yet one of the more dramatic kitchen knives that I have come across.
