Description: Ian Rogers hand builds each knife one-at-a-time without the use of waterjet or laser cutters. He is one of the very few knifemakers in the world that forges his own stainless damascus in-house. Ian's understanding of chef's knives is exceptional. His knives have a tremendous sense of presence and flow.
The slicing knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife but its blade is narrower and straighter. It's perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Its slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. Slicing knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses. This knife is perfect for those that prefer a slightly longer slicing knife to clear some of the larger foods, while still being small enough to be nimble and easy to use.
The damascus blade was hand forged from 52100 and 15N20 carbon steels ensuring excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The blade features thin geometry for high performance slicing and chopping. The spine and choil are rounded for a comfortable pinch grip. Ian's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The ambidextrous handle is a style often called a half-round in Japan. The lower half is rounded for comfort, whereas the top features three facets. Many people, both in Japan and abroad, feel this to be the most comfortable and versatile Japanese handle shape. Amboyna burl is combined with a carbon fiber ferrule to create an exceptionally beautiful handle. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
