Description: Argentinian knifemaker Mariano Yannoni is creating some spectacular knives. Born in 1974, Mariano is proud to belong to a generation that has brought back custom knifemaking to his country. Mariano studies under renowned master knifemaker Miguel Ángel Gugliotta. Yannoni's knives are expertly made and show a tremendous level of craftmanship. He brings his skills to knives designed for the outdoors, daily carry, and the kitchen.
The chef's knife is used for all-around food preparation. The arc of the blade edge is perfect for a rocking chop. Whether slicing, chopping, or dicing, this nimble chef's knife is a perfect choice.
The blade is hand ground O2 (K720) carbon steel. At Hrc 60-61, it will have a keen, long lasting edge. An elegant forced patina provides limited rust resistance and helps you get comfortable working with carbon steels. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend oiling the blade after use with camellia oil. A high flat grind ensures this knife makes a particularly effective cut.
The handle combines presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood with carbon fiber and nickle silver spacers. The hand contoured handle is extremely comfortable and provides a sure grip.
Making it easy to keep this knife close at hand, Yannoni included a custom, hand stitched leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
