Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey is well known for his tremendous attention to detail -- only matched by his skill at design. This playful Kiridashi from Harvey is a spectacular knife. Whether it finds its way into your kitchen as a utility knife or is used as a marking knife, Sujikaki Kiridashi is a tremendous knife.
The thin triangular blade was forged to shape from Kevin's own damascus, combining O1, 5160 and 15N20 carbon steels in 192 layers of steel. The resulting pattern is high contrast and beautiful. The blade is sharpened with a 70/30 edge to facilitate a clean, straight cut.
The handle is a classic Japanese shinogi handle with a ridge running along the right hand side. It is formed from Australian Ringed Gidgee (Acacia cambagei). A small front ferrule is formed from African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon). Thin nickel silver spacers provide a nice accent.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched cowhide sleeve.
