Description: South Africa bladesmith Dave Skinner brings an exceptional level of work to his knives. Whether the knife is designed for the kitchen, for use out in the field, or for a collector, Skinner brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives.
This Japanese-inspired chef's knife is a tremendous tool in the kitchen. It is perfect the the chef that prefers a smaller knife that is easier to control. At 5-1/3", it is long enough to get most any task done, yet short enough to mince herbs, chop garlic, or slice tomatos with ease. At 1-1/2 inches tall, it has just enough height to be used as a primary chef's knife. Whether chopping, slicing, mincing, or dicing, this is sure to become a goto knife in your kitchen.
The blade is hand ground Bohler N690 and features a hand rubbed satin finish. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. Dave's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
Like the blade, the handle is inspired by Japanese knives. The octagonal shape is extremely comfortable. By using Micarta, Skinner ensures this knife will hold up well to the high demands of either a professional or home kitchen. A black G-10 spacer and nickel silver bolster seal the front of the handle from water. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
