Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey began this elegant chef's knife by forging his own pattern damascus to shape. The pattern is one he calls "Sun Beam" - rays travel from the bolster toward the cutting edge. By forging the damascus from carbon steels, Harvey ensures a keen, long lasting edge. This integral chef's knife is a perfect choice for chopping and slicing and is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen.
Showing his mastery in the forge, Kevin forged the entire knife from a single billet of damascus. Creating a fully integral knife is tremendously difficult.
A distal taper to the blade provides optimal balance. The handle swells just past the ricasso, providing a comfortable, secure grip.
Kevin built a leather sheath for this kitchen knife to protect the edge while being transported.
Exceptional work throughout!
