Description: Journeyman Smith Erik Fritz has been working on kitchen knives the last couple years and his latest knives have been amazing! This slicing knife is a perfect choice for carving a turkey, slicing roast, or removing silver skin from raw meats. The slender blade combines control and precision.
The 7-1/4 inch blade was hand forged from Erik's own damascus steel, beginning with 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels. A differential heat treatment results in a keen, long lasting edge, with strength and durability for the spine. Because this knife is carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. This knife is nicely balanced and is not one that you'll want to put down.
The handle is formed from presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood, set on the full tang. It is set with two stainless steel pins. The warm toned wood has been nicely carved so as to swell and the palm move into a slimmer waist, and swell again as it approaches the beak.
Exceptional work throughout!
