Mother of pearl symbolizes the stormy sky and the central element around the pivot, the rotating propeller into the stormy night. The openwork structure of the handle resembles the spaces between the wings of a biplane. Blade material is "Dragon Skin" Damascus forged by Bertie Rietveld. "Dragon Skin" pattern has been chosen to represent the main idea of this knife: a tribute to the pioneers of aviation.
Heat treating bring optimal balance between hardness and toughness of the blade.

LesBar Knives was established in 2018 in Irpin (Ukraine) as a collaboration project of Oleh Lesuchevsky and Stan Baranovsky. Two friends have decided To join their efforts in making high-quality folding knives.Oleh has been making knives since 1993. When he was 18, his stepfather decided to bring him into the family business. In that period, there were primarily fixed-blade hunting knives. One Day Oleh arrived at Stan's shop to order a few silver parts for his new project and when the work has been completed, proposed to make knives together. Stan is a third-generation bench jeweler. At 6 he began to learn the art of hand engraving. At 13, he began working as an apprentice to his father. After graduation from a local college, he moved to Los Angeles where he studiem jewelry design and worked as an antique restorer. Still, he always wanted To make knives. I always tried to implement it when making jewelry. But meeting with Oleh, he decided to abandon jewelry and focused on knifemaking. Each time we create a new knife, I consider it from an aesthetical point of view, Oleh cares about usability and function.
I see knives as objects of art. For him, they are tools and weapons.
