Description: This tall petty knife was made by Gabriel Mabry (Doberman Forge) of Albemarle, North Carolina. Gabriel has a wide variety of skills from his background as a USMC marine, professional chef, restaurant owner, and certifed welder. He uses these skills to make knives that will serve their owners for a lifetime just like his loyal family pet that his forge is named after! Gabriel also became a Forged in Fire champion in the September 15, 2017 episode of the acclaimed TV series!
This tall petty knife is a perfect choice for detailed tasks such as cutting the eyes out of potatoes or the heads off tomatoes and strawberries. The taller profile makes it great for detailed chopping tasks such as mincing garlic and shallots along with detailed chopping and slicing of many other fruits, vegetables, and meats.
The 4-1/4 inch blade is made from satin finished Nitro V stainless steel, hardened to 61 Hrc. Nitro-V is a martensitic stainless steel with a chromium-based composition created by the New Jersey Steel Baron company. Meant to replicate AEB-L, nitrogen and vanadium have been added to the composition to improve edge performance. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge. The flat ground blade is distal tapered which lightens the blade and gives it a great balance.
The handle is made from a purple hybridwood combining dyed and stabilized wood and purple resin. Handle scales are secured to the full tang using two brass pins. The scales are domed providing a comfortable, secure grip. Because the wood is stabalized with resin, it will hold up very well to the harsh demands of a professional kitchen. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
