Ryan Clift Damascus Steel knives
Handmade knives filled with a mystical aura conceived by British-born chef Ryan Clift. Find out more about the making of these prized kitchen helpers and why they deserve pride of place in every home kitchen.
The story of British-born chef Ryan Clift is a remarkable one: He started working in a restaurant at the age of 14 and now helms several restaurants, including Tippling Club, which has been coined one of the best restaurants in Singapore. Naturally, Ryan’s series of knives – called Damascus Steel – is just as impressive. These knives were forged in Bali by keris makers Blades of the Gods, and made in Germany by knife manufacturer Wind mu eh len mess er.
In Balinese culture, only those born into the Pande caste may forge the keris. The keris is a dagger that can be used as a weapon, spiritual object, and a display of art. FIND THE DAMASCUS STEEL KNIVES AT TIPPLING CLUB AND ONLINE AT WWW....
Blades of the Gods are a group of ninth-generation blacksmiths led by Empu Ketut Mudra, one of the last blacksmiths able to forge this cultural treasure.
