Description: Francisco Vaz lives in Rio Grande, Brazil. He has been making knives since 2017 and is a master of chef's knives. Each knife that he creates is a handmade, high performance work of art. He grinds all of his knives by hand without the use of jigs and believes heavily in making his knives by hand. His knives are lightweight and have exceptionally thin geometry for high performance cuts.
Chef's knives are the essential kitchen knife. They are used for all-around food preparation. This nimble knife is influenced by traditional Japanese knives. The arc of the blade edge is perfect for a rocking chop or a slicing cut. The slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance just right. Whether slicing, chopping, or dicing, this nimble chef's knife is a perfect choice.
The blade is damascus forged from stainless steels for easy maintenance. The deeply etched pattern provides a rough surface for additional food release. The spine and choil are rounded for comfort. This blade is extremely thin for high performance cuts. The knife is very lightweight and extremely nimble in hand. Francisco's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The ambidextrous handle is inspired by the Japanese octagonal handle. The handle combines jet ebony with woolly mammoth molar spacers. The inlays are exceptional with no gaps showing between materials. The handle is very lightweight and extremely comfortable. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Exceptional work throughout!
