Description: This chef's utility 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 certified 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 utility knife is a perfect choice for detail 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 or portioning meats.
The 4 inch blade is AEB-L stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. AEB-L is ultra high performance -- combining the convenience of stainless steel with the ability to take an acute edge and hold it (a characteristic usually only found in carbon steels). AEB-L was designed for razors, which need corrosion resistance, high hardness, and very acute edges. Once you try a knife that is made with AEB-L, you'll immediately understand why it is coveted by knife enthusiasts, knifemakers, and professional chefs. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge. The distal tapered blade creates a perfect balance. Corners of the spine are rounded for comfort.
Handle scales are black/blue G-10. They are secured to the full tang using stainless pins. The handle is domed for a comfortable, secure grip. 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.
Nice work throughout!
