Description: Tom Buckner, out of Olympia, Washington, makes an amazing culinary knife. He has a tremendous fit and finish and well tested designs.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. At 6-3/4 inches, it is easy to maneuver safely and effortlessly. This is a perfect choice for the chef that wants an ultra-high performing knife, yet wants the easy care of stainless steel.
The blade is formed from high performing stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The complex pattern is called a twist. As well as being beautiful, this elegant blade will have exceptional edge holding. The full flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry.
The handle is made from presentation grade curly koa wood (Acacia koa). It has tremendous stability and has a tight curl with beautiful chatoyancy. White fiber spacers separate the scales from the full tang. This assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The rounded handle is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip. Scales are set with a central mosaic pin and two stainless steel hidden bolt rivets. A contoured 416 stainless steel bolster seals the front of the handle.
This chef's knife is accompanied by a custom curly koa saya. The lock pin is engineered to remain on the saya so that it is not easily lost.
Excellent work throughout!
