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 high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited as a general purpose chef's knife. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The 8-2/3 inch blade is Austrian Bohler N690 stainless steel. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance, hard use knives. A hand rubbed satin finish adds an heirloom quality to the blade. A Fujiwara-inspired finger notch allows additional control over the knife. Dave's mark is on the left side of the blade.
The Japanese-inspired ambidextrous octagonal handle combines masur birch with black Micarta. The double dyed wood is extremely engaging. Black G10 helps the material adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The front of the handle is sealed with textured nickel silver, preventing food and water from getting in.
Excellent work throughout!
