Description: Jeremy Yelle is a 22 year old up-and-coming maker out of Quebec, Canada. His current focus is high performance kitchen knives, bowie knives, and hunting knives. He received his journeyman smith award at Blade Show 2022. His work is exceptional and he is sure to be a maker to keep an eye on. Lately he has been working on some high performance chef's knives and the results are wonderful!
This 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 just enough finger clearance over a cutting board.
The feather damascus blade is forged from 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding. The high contrast pattern is exceptional and draws you in for further inspection. The thin blade is lightly convexed for better food release. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort.
The Japanese-inspired octagonal handle is dyed and stabilized maple burl. The ambidextrous handle is extremely comfortable and accommodates a comfortable pinch grip. The handle is fit perfectly to a copper flake carbon fiber ferrule. This knife is lightweight and perfectly balanced.
Exceptional work throughout!
