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.
Mareko forged the complex radialed damascus to have tremendous amounts of detail hidden in the steel. Interlaced snowflakes fall against a stark night sky. 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 a single piece spalted maple burl. The workmanship is beautiful, and the wood chosen is gorgeous! The convoluted whirlwind figure travels through the wood. By using stabilized wood, Mareko has ensured that his knife will hold up well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. The contoured handle ensures a comfortable and safe grip. Alternating cooper nickel and micarta spacers set between the handle and integral bolster assist the wood to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Cooper nickel brings in warm tones, but does not tarnish like copper and brass.
A gorgeous piece built for serious use, yet among the more dramatic kitchen knives that I have come across.
