As 2020 draws to a close, I am thrilled to share the exciting news of my feature in the esteemed Blade Magazine KNIVES 2020. This year has been filled with challenges, but this recognition is truly a high point and a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship poured into my work.

One of the highlights featured in the magazine is the ‘Natural Galaxy Handle’ crafted by Andreas Kalani for the Damascus Kiritsuke—a knife meticulously designed for the delicate art of preparing fish and vegetables. This unique handle is a marvel of artistry, incorporating natural elements preserved in hand-poured and cured resin. Shaped with precision, it offers a glimpse into a mesmerizing journey through the natural galaxy, capturing the imagination with its intricate detail. (Image courtesy of SharpByCoop)
