Description: This paring knife was made by Seattle native, Bhakti Sa. Bhakti has been apprenticing under David Lisch and it is clear he has been working hard. His understanding of chef's knives is exceptional.
This high performance paring knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks such as slicing garlic, taking the eyes out of potatoes and the heads off strawberries. It is one of the most important knives in the kitchen, second only to your all-purpose chef's knife or santoku.
Bhakti forged the pool and eye pattern damascus beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. This ensures a keen long lasting edge as well as exceptional beauty! The high contrast pattern is immediately captivating. The blade and bolster are both 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.
Bhakti Sa formed the elegantly contoured handle from presentation grade stabilized redwood burl. The workmanship is beautiful, and the wood chosen is gorgeous! The dark toned, convoluted wood is entirely captivating! 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, Sa 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 among the most dramatic kitchen knives that I have come across.
