Liong Mah Design is an evolution for man's oldest tool. For him it is functional art.
Liong Mah’s background is as a pastry chef based in New York where he used knives as his daily tools of his trade so he became very accustomed to getting the best out of his knives.
At a young age when other kids were doodling cartoons in their notebooks, Liong drew knife designs as he was always aware of his passion for knives as early as he can remember in his life.
After having learned CAD, for sixteen years now he has been bringing his ideas to life and been lucky to work with many of the top knife designers and makers in the industry.
With useful sensibility incorporated into his designs along with traditional styles using modern materials, Liong’s gears are always turning forward to the next best thing. Never stopping at good enough, Liong always asks himself why that was done that way and especially if something could be done a better way.
Each knife and tool is a result of an obsession with fine engineering, craftsmanship and a commitment to perfection. Liong Mah Design is committed to a performance and a reputation reflecting the very best that one can achieve.
