Creating a sharper image.

Leucadia Custom Knives engaged Michael DiTullo to design a knife that would visually show the meticulous craftsmanship of their blades and handles . The result is the Layer Knife, a limited edition product with a Swedish AEB-L stainless steel blade and compressed paper and canvas Micarta handle. The handle's section elegantly transitions from circular to ovular, reinforcing the proper cutting grip while showing off LCK's craftsmanship through the resulting topographical map effect.
