Loerchner Elizabeth lock-back

Elizabeth Loerchner

440C stainless blade is 4-1/4" long. Closed knife: 5-1/2"

416 stainless frame has gold and cloisonné inlays with gold wire on French Gray finish.

Elizabeth- like her father and teacher- sculptures her knives with hand files only. It is a very time consuming process but effect is smooth to the touch and sharp looking at the same time. The knife's picture is in actual size. Elizabeth's knives often remind knives made by her father- Wolfgang and sometime is difficult to tell them apart. This is a great achievement on her part  as he is truly one  of the best. It would be curious to see where her great already  skills will take her.

(As far as I know, Wolf do not use cloisonné technique on his knives.  )
