Description: Mastersmith Aaron Wilburn, a long time maker of knives for the outdoor enthusiast, has expanded his focus to include culinary knives - creating high-performing kitchen workhorses! They have become exceptionally popular among chefs. This chef's knife is the perfect daily use workhorse for either at home or professional kitchen.
The 10-1/4 inch blade is forged from Aaron's own mosaic damascus, combining 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels to ensuring excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The chef knife is particularly tall at 2.35" inches ensuring the knife will last a lifetime of sharpening and provide plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The blade is distal tapered from the heel into a high performance thin tip. Aaron's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The Japanese-inspired octagonal handle features premium curly koa with a desirable tight curly figure. Koa (Acacia koa) is a beautiful exotic wood that only grows on the Hawaiian islands. It is one of the most desirable woods in the world. A central spacer is ancient woolly mammoth tooth. The handle fills your hand nicely and is designed for either left or right-handed users. This is a knife you won't want to put down! It is sure to become a kitchen favorite.
Excellent work throughout!
