An exceptional razor. A forged multilayered blade, with a 90mcv8/15n20 Damascus steel of 200 layers. At the centre, nickel steel and a Japanese Aogami steel edge. Transparent calf horn handle, placed on the brass locks. Hammered brass moulding. Washers on sculpted brass rivets. Brass axles. Sold shave ready.
If a Japanese chef needs two different knives for cutting carrots, one for those from the North and another for from the South, it becomes easier to understand that each of us has the need to have in our kitchen, our pocket, our vanity case, and on our table his unique knives: like the lines on our palms. Japan is watermarked in the work and aesthetic created by Antzenberger’s magic fingers. Not only the possibly too obvious japan of Hatori Hanzo, but also, intertwined, rustled by poetry and life.,The ’In’ei raisan of Tanizaki, the sensuality of Hokusaï and the coalescence of Miyazaki.
A world apart is being created in his hands, and each of Evan Antzenberger’s knives reinforce its edge and increases its value and beauty.
