Andreas is a very talented blade-smith and a true artist. He combines his handcrafted beautiful designs with a gorgeous blade that is well balanced and a pleasure to use. I received one of his Chef knives as a gift and fell in love with it immediately. So when I needed a very special graduation gift for a dear friend who graduated Cornell, Andreas took care of everything and had so much attention to detail that I knew this was going to be a treasured knife. He creates a 13” Chef Knife and 8” Paring Knife in High Carbon Random Damascus with his signature design Natural Galaxy. I wanted all the pieces in the handle to be edible ingredients one would use in a kitchen as my friend is a Chef. Andreas helped me choose organic herbs and spices such as Star Anise, Cumin Seed, Fennel Seed, Red Peppercorn, Cinnamon stick Parsley, Rosemary, Gold Leaves and the Red Gold Saffron. Not only was this absolutely stunning, but then he blew my mind by making a handmade custom leather sheath for the two knives as well as laser engraving it with a special message to my friend. Thank you, Andreas! I will be back for many more!
