Description: This exceptional chef's portioning/slicing knife was hand forged by Journeyman Smith Mak Kelsay in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Kelsay began his blacksmithing journey in the spring of 2017 when he joined the Choo Choo Forge and immediately began their green coal program. He was immediately addicted. Since then, he has learned from some of the best in the industry -- folks like Lyle Wynn, Clay Spencer, Mike Lammare, Mark Aspery, Pete Brasspenninx and many others. In June, 2021, he was honored to become an ABS journeyman smith. Kelsay specializes in chef's knives -- knowing that his knives will be used each day in home and commercial kitchens. We're very excited to offer a range of his exceptional work!
Whether carving a turkey, slicing a roast, or deboning meats and fish, this one-of-a-kind masterpiece is a perfect choice!
The 6-3/4 inch slicing knife is hand forged multi-bar twist damascus, combining 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to provide excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The pattern is extremely engaging and calls for further examination. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort. A convex edge provides a durable, long lasting edge. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to prevent rust and for oiling the natural wood handle.
The handle is presentation grade, dyed and stabilized maple burl. It tapers toward the front to accommodate a comfortable pinch grip. A black G-10 bolster seals the front of the handle. This exceptional knife is perfect for either professional or home use. Like other knives this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
To protect the knife during transportation a black leather sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
