Description: I was tremendously pleased to meet bladesmith Dave Skinner at the 2019 Guild Show of Southern Africa. Since then, his knives have continued to develop. Dave brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives. Dave makes many different styles of fixed blades and lately he has turned some of his focus into creating high performance chef knives.
This high performance damascus chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for chopping vegetables and slicing meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The 8-3/4 inch blade is made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The high contrast pattern is immensely captivating and will provide a keen, long lasting edge. Damasteel damascus ensures exceptional performance without the care needed to maintain damascus forged from carbon steels. The nimble blade is distal tapered, ensuring a perfect balance. Dave's maker mark is on the left side of the blade.
Like the blade, the handle is inspired by Japanese knives. The octagonal shape is extremely comfortable -- even when used for hours at a time. The elegant, dyed and stabilized maple burl handle will hold up beautifully to the high demands of either a professional or home kitchen. A front spacer is formed from crosscut black Micarta. The front of the handle is sealed with a stainless 'bolster'. This is a knife you won't want to put down and is sure to become your go-to knife in the kitchen!
Excellent work throughout!
