This chef's knife is likely to become the primary knife used in your kitchen. The sleek blade provides finger clearance while being extremely dexterous. The blade has a perfect shape for an efficient rocking chop. Whether chopping onions, mincing garlic, or slicing meats, this knife will be a perfect choice. This chef's knife is sure to become a kitchen favorite.
Andrew hand forged the 80CrV2 carbon steel blade. An S-grind allows foods to slide off the side of the knife instead of sticking. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort. The blade moves into an integral bolster, ensuring superior durability and strength while bringing weight toward the center of the knife. The bolster is hand engraved with an image of basil leaves.
The kingwood handle is hand contoured for a secure, comfortable grip even after hours of use. Warm tones in the wood are highlighted by the brass hidden bolt rivet.
Exceptional work throughout!
