Description: Mareko Maumasi is creating some of the more exciting chef's knives that I have ever seen. He worked for years with Mastersmith Bob Kramer. It is no surprise that his understanding of kitchen knives as well as insight into working with steel is exceptional. His moniker is Maumasi Firearts. His friendship with Journeyman Smith David Lisch has helped push his knifemaking to the next level, as he has incorporated tremendously complex damascus and integral bolsters into his repertoire.
The kirisuke gyuto is a traditional Japanese chefs knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper with a nice rock and plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The downturned front ensures a detail-oriented tip.
Mareko forged the damascus to have tremendous amounts of detail hidden in the steel. 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 integral bolster was forged so as to approach the blade at an angle -- resulting in a knife that is amazingly comfortable in a pinch grip.
The handle is formed from stabilized sycamore burl with oak burl accents. The combination of light and dark toned woods is particularly enticing. This Wa (traditional Japanese) style handle is a hybrid of octagonal and D-shaped handles and is called a 'half-round handle'. It provides a wide range of comfortable grips and is equally comfortable for left and right handed users. The workmanship is beautiful, and the woods chosen gorgeous! Alternating silicon bronze and black G10 spacers set between the handle and integral bolster assist the wood to adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
A gorgeous piece built for serious use, yet one of the more dramatic kitchen knives that I have come across!
