This is a set of ‘nesting’ chef’s knives, that, though functional, are primarily an exploration of artistic creativity.  The blades are crafted from high carbon stainless steel and are painstakingly hand matched so that each progressively smaller knife may fit within its predecessor.  The handle scales are made of a beautiful piece of maple burl wood and are meticulously pinned in place on the skeletonized frame of the knife. The base that the knives rest on is made from the very same piece of maple burl wood to produce a uniform, cohesive appearance.  I drew inspiration for this project from online references, but I put my own spin on it by elevating the design and materials used. This one took some time people; although the process was quite tedious, I think this may be one of the most beautiful things I have yet to create.
