Description: Mastersmith David Lisch has become well known for his bowies and kitchen knives, but before all that he was a blacksmith. This brute de forge style knife show's David's skill at the forge -- a skillset earned working countless thousands of hours working at the forge. David brings a skill level forging that few bladesmiths possess.
David forged this brute de forge s utility very closely to shape, beginning with a bar of his own damascus. The blade features a forge finish along the flats and reveals the intricate damascus pattern in the grinds. His choice of steels, as well as his skillful heat treatment, ensures that this is not only a beautiful knife, but also a high performing tool. The finger choil is nicely upset for a very comfortable grip.
The handle is formed from premium sambar stag that is set between the split tang. The two ends of the tang were finally tied in an elegant knot -- quite a feat considering it need to be done at forge temperatures!
Excellent work throughout.
