Binary Suns Redwood Chef 233mm

Moving through time and space, gravitational waves diverge, and converge again, as suns of a binary system orbit a center of mass between them, adhering to the laws of physics and at the same time bending the mind with the power and potential they represent. Enter bladesmith Joshua Prince, and his ability to harness the forces of nature through the movement of metal and celestial imagery to create a one-of-a-kind chef knife forged by hand, bearing not only the geometry and nuance to become any chef's go-to daily prep knife, but a piece of astrologically inspired art at the same time. Thin, flexible, and razor-sharp, homemade carbon damascus steel forms both the 233mm / 9.17" blade and integral bolster, while a beautiful piece of redwood completes the sculped handle. And for transport and protection, a world-class saya formed from beaver tail leather with magnetic blade retention crafted by Francesca Ritchie of Teton Leather Co. is included.

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.
