Lue Brass Paper Knife #26
Lue Brass


A handmade paper knife by Japanese metalworker Ruka Kikuchi (aka Lue). He makes these by shaping a small insert out of brass to use as the knife point, he then produces a wooden surround to use as a handle.

As time progresses you'll find that the knife will patina and darken as the metal oxidises, also reacting to the natural oils on ones hands. Each is unique, featuring little scratches up-close where the craftsman has been at work.

This commitment to quality is why he opts to do all the cutting, hammering, and finishing himself, and by hand. Made to last for many years to come. 

Approx Dimensions - L 19.5cm x W 0.75cm

Handmade in Okayama, Japan.
