Akari™ designer Lucas Burnley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, strives to create knives with an unparalleled level of design and function, using ever-evolving techniques and materials. He takes this approach with each of his knives, applying a combination of brutal simplicity and practicality, and a high regard for both function and visual appeal. The Akari™ hits on all these points, and leaves nothing to be desired. This knife is an impressive blend of visually intriguing lines and the Neo Japanese inspiration often found in Burnley’s work.
The acid-etched blade, with its upswept style makes the Akari™ very friendly and easy to use. While the black and neon green patterned handle provides a unique aesthetic, with unmatched grip and cutting efficiency. Both will have you taking your time and enjoying your cutting tasks.
This knife looks and feels so good as it’s getting the job done, you may almost forget you’re on the job.
When you ask Lucas what drew him to the knife world as a teenager, he’ll tell you it was stories of survival, off-path adventures with his father, and a healthy dose of action movies.
Over the years, he has experimented with a broad range of styles to artfully combine classical examples with modern materials and techniques, such as with his Obake™ knife. Lucas believes knives are a personal expression of independence. We couldn’t agree more.
