Description: Jerry Goettig, out of Bend, Oregon, makes an amazing culinary knife. He has been making knives since 2010 and uses both stock removal and forging techniques. He has quickly become well known for his high performance chef's knives.
This American-made chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. At 6-1/2 inches, this is among the most popular sizes for a primary chef's knife. It is large enough to get most any task done, yet short enough to do it with ease.
The blade is high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The blade is convex ground for additional food release and chip resistance. Goettig heat treats his blades with a cryogenic treatment to ensure a high performing 63 Hrc. Both the spine and choil are nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
Handle scales are We the People" paper Micarta. This unique Micarta was created by taking stacked sheets of paper set in resin. The results are a beautiful and dramatic handle. Black G-10 spacers add a nice touch of contrast to the scales. The handle is nicely contoured to swell toward the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
