Loch-Ness-Muk Petty 135mm

Forged from a 33mm-diameter round bar of Damasteel's Heimskringla pattern stainless damascus, bladesmith Joshua Prince has created another uniquely inspired knife for the kitchen. In an eye-catching profile that conjures the infamous Loch Ness Monster's figure from Scottish folklore, the blade is tall, nicely curved, and guaranteed to encourage discussion and contemplation, much like the aquatic beast itself. Nicely balanced geometry and tall bevels deliver a stout and sturdy blade for big cuts in a compact size. The handle, beginning with the integral bolster which skews the steel's pattern in comparison with the lines and swirls covering the blade itself, extends back in a hand-filling and comfortable grip of sculpted rosewood, supported by a single copper pin.

The Story

Gravitating toward sculpture from an early age, wood, stone, clay, and concrete have all played the roll of canvas in Joshua Prince's artistic pursuits, with blacksmithing and bladesmithing stealing his heart and leading him to found Princeworks Forge. The opportunities to incorporate a wide variety of materials, colors, and texture in to objects that can be held in the hand, contemplated, and put to task in the kitchen, is what Joshua loves about crafting knives. And it shows, in his other-worldly designs, mesmerizing damascus patterns, and larger-than-life culinary objects. We're honored to represent Joshua's work here at Eatingtools.
