Description: This chef's 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 became a Forged in Fire champion in the September 15, 2017 episode of the acclaimed TV series!
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 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. At 8.1 inches, this is among the most popular sizes for a primary chef's knife. It is large enough to get most any task done, yet short enough to do it with ease.
The blade is 80CrV2 carbon steel, ensuring a chip-resistant, razor sharp edge. An antique finish helps protect the knife from rust, though we recommend using camellia oil after use to make care even easier. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort.
Handle scales are stabilized and dyed maple burl. They are secured to the full tang using two bronze pins. The handle is domed for a comfortable, secure grip. Because the wood is stabilized, it will hold up very well to the harsh demands of either a home or professional kitchen. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
