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 chef knife is lightweight, has excellent cutting geometry, and a nice tall heel for plenty of height over the cutting board.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary choice in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is great slicing and chopping vegetables and meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. This knife, with its deep belly combines a German-influenced shape with a nimble Japanese edge geometry. From chopping to slicing, this will be your go-to knife.
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 mark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is dyed and stabilized black ash burl, ensuring a durable, resilient handle. The faceted handle is carved to accommodate a comfortable pinch grip. This is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen! Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
