These are custom Chef knives with a beautiful Brass (Br) and Copper (Cu) Damascus.  Often called Rainbow or Tiger Damascus.  This method involves hammering a total 28 layers of Brass and Copper along with Stainless steel to create this rare and unique pattern which is welded to an amazing VG10 core.

Special care and extra time is taken to avoid overheating the copper the brass layers during the production process.  The final appearance can vary slightly with tones of Copper or Brass prevailing in some instances. 

Handle Options - Contact us for custom combinations

**Gemstone composite Info**
The Gemstone handles are made of 80% real stone dust mixed with acrylic resins to form a corian like material which is very hard and waterproof that simulates the natural stone.

**Metal core**
For our BrCu Mai series we are offering Brass and Copper combined in the handle or by themselves.  The metal is manipulated and infused with resin to form a unique pattern on every handle.

**Carbon Fiber**
Chopped Carbon fiber is combined with brass or copper or both brass and copper for a stylish black handle where the CF sparkles.

**Resin and Stabilized burl**
Stabilized Burl is combined with our resin to create these one of a kind knives.  The elegance of classic wood combined with modern resin styles.

** Resin cast Stabilized Pine cone handles**
These stabilized pine cone handles are cast under pressure to force the resin into all the nooks and crannies of the pine cone which is then shaped and polished by hand.

** Stabilized Wood**
Our highest end old growth burls are selected and then stabilized.  The process of wood stabilization forces liquid resins into the wood under high pressure. The resins completely impregnate the wood, and then cure, so the wood now resists shrinking and swelling with the weather as well as taking on water.

Any color can be made, if you want a special color please message us :)
