The Story

Continually experimenting with new techniques and materials, Robert Trimarchi nonetheless produces a variety of knives with an undeniable common thread: an organic feeling, no-frills aesthetic that at the same time exudes elegance through simplicity. Yet things are not always as simple as they seem. A brass fitting in the handle adds an extra touch in this knife, contrasting the hand-rubbed kasumi finish, which together go wonderfully with the weeping myall wood wall rack that comes with the knife. Every detail is accounted for.
