Custom Chef's Knife - Artemis by Jay Fisher

OK – this is going to come in a few parts (cause I can’t do anything simple … )

First – the image above got your attention. This is a custom made chef’s knife by Master Knifemaker Jay Fisher. Jay works out of The Enchanted Spirits Studio in Clovis, MN.

I commissioned this piece almost three years ago – took a good 2 1/2 to get it and was well worth the wait.

Click the image or the link above to visit our blog site for an initial introduction to the story behind this knife. The blog entry will take you to Part I of a documentary featuring the piece. Part II will be released in our next newsletter (hopefully this coming week!)

I figured that given none of us can accomplish anything with our woodworking without sharp tools – which means that most of us are likely just as fascinated with sharp shiny objects as we are with our wood. (Yeah yeah … I know …)

Jay is a world renowned knifemaker – his pieces range from combat knives, chef’s knifes, collectors pieces, swords, through any possible type of blade. I’d bet he has a few ultimate whittler’s as well …

Anyways – follow the blog link to Jay’s site or jump directly to it at
