Description: This chef's slicing knife is the work of Canadian bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. The maker's mark on Kelly's knives is his family's cattle brand, which has been passed down to his dad by his grandmother. When he started to make knives, he thought he would use something that stood the test of time to mark them. With this brand on his knives and the craftsmanship that he put into them, he knows they will stand the test of time long after he is gone.
This slicing knife will become a goto knife in your kitchen. Whether slicing meats, vegetables or carving a turkey, this slicing knife will do the job exceptionally well.
The blade is hand forged from Kelly's own Turkish Twist pattern damascus. Alternating bars of twisted damascus were combined to form the elegant steel. By using carbon steel, Dally ensures a keen edge as well as exceptional beauty! A clear differential heat treatment is visible in the blade which results in a long lasting edge with strength and durability from the spine. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
Kingwood (Dalbergia cearensis) handle scales are set on a full tang with mosaic pins. A true rosewood, kingwood is harvested from a small tree that is restricted to a small area in Brazil. Extremely rare, kingwood was so famous for being used in the finest furniture during the 17th century that it was often only sold to royalty. The knife has great balance and feels exceptional in the hand. Polished stainless steel bolsters are dovetailed to the kingwood ensuring a perfect fit.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
