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 santoku is the traditional general purpose chef's knife used in Japan. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The Santoku style has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West.
Mareko forged the complex damascus to have tremendous amounts of detail hidden in the steel. The blade is 400 layer damascus. The blade and bolster are 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 of red mallee burl. The workmanship is beautiful, and the wood chosen is gorgeous! 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 silicon bronze and G-10 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 among the more dramatic kitchen knives that I have come across.
