Mareko Maumasi is a knifemaker who truly understands chef’s knives at a level that can only be fully grasped by an accomplished chef. His skill as a knifemaker, combined with this understanding of chef’s knives, is clearly going to set him apart as one of the great living chef’s knife makers.

Daniel O'Malley, President BladeGallery/ Epicurean Edge

Grabbing this knife was like finding that perfect pair of shoes that feel good the first time you try them on and don't need to be broken in.

Lucretia, an independent reviewer of a Maumasi knife

I wanted to write to you to tell you how pleased I am with the knife you made. It is the perfect all purpose knife in the kitchen. It has great balance, the handle is very comfortable in a number of different grips. The integral bolster makes it easy to use this knife in a pinch grip. I also love how unique and dramatic it is with the bold Damascus pattern and the red mallee burl handle. It is truly a one of kind piece that I'm happy to own.

Mark Catania, an independent reviewer of a Maumasi Knife

In the short time [Mareko] has been making knives he has shown the ability to innovate on a level that is very impressive.

Master Smith David Lisch

[This is] the sort of unique, high-quality knife you pass down to your kids.
