Damasteel® Chef Invitational
Damasteel® Chef Invitational is an exclusive chef knife show with world class knife makers. Specially invited chefs and restaurant owners get the opportunity to try and buy beautiful chef knives made of stainless patterned Damascus steel.
– We wanted to create an event that could show chefs and collectors the difference between something that was made at an assembly line and something that was made one at a time, by hand, by a master craftsman, Kolter Livengood, owner and Chef Brightwok Kitchen.
The knives have a special pattern and special made handles and sheaths / covers. One of the makers Rick Petko chose an Honduran rosewood with 7260 year old Russian bog oak with a copper from the original cord that lit the torch of the Statue of Liberty as a handle and the saya is made of Bolivian rosewood with a gwenge center.
Its not only the beauty that makes the kitchen knives so exclusive, its also the stainless patterned Damascus steel that gives the knives a special character and strength. The high cleanliness, edge sharpness and corrosion resistance make it an upcoming product for chefs.
– The excitement of arranging this is to see the result of the work the most talented craftsmen making absolutely stunning chef knives out of our patterned steel. It’s also about letting two different worlds meet with the common interest of creating art with world class handcraft but also to feel the functionality and performance of the steel, Per Jarbelius, Owner Damasteel®
The next Damasteel® Chef Invitational will be in May the 20th at Town Cutler in Chicago.
