These hand made high carbon tool steel kitchen knives are crafted and heat treated one knife at a time, by master blade smith Michael Moses Lishinsky, and have been since 1980. I use 1084 high carbon tool steel, just like in the old days. My knives are in kitchens all around the world. I ship to all English speaking countries
(along with France, Sweden & Norway). I work for individuals and some major corporations creating unique one of a kind gifts.
Besides custom work, I make a line of western style kitchen knives and a line of Asian inspired kitchen knives. I also do restoration of old knives and armaments.
My designs are all time honored, affordable, guaranteed, original, lightweight and unique. Each kitchen knife has perfect balance, and is constructed with a full tang on the handle (a wood & steel sandwich).
I offer choices in your kitchen knife of different local eco-harvested hard woods, as well as stabilized woods which you choose.
All handles are finished with 2-4 coats of an oil/wax mixture, which is allowed to soak in between applications. The wax is Carnauba and Bees wax, 50/50.
All work is guaranteed. There are also various choices of handle construction and so many sizes and shapes of kitchen knives that I cannot mention all here. Hence this web site. So your cordially invited to cruise around my site, using the above blue drop down menu. There is a lot to read and see & it can give anyone a great basic education about carbon steel kitchen knives, and my work.
