Description: Jerry Goettig, out of Bend, Oregon, makes an amazing culinary knife. Jerry has been making knives since 2010 and uses both stock removal and forging techniques. He is quickly becoming well known for his high performance chef's knives.
This American-made chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The kiritsuke tip provides a detail-oriented, strong tip. Whether slicing onions, chopping vegetables, or portioning meats, this chef's knife is a perfect go-to knife in the kitchen.
The blade is formed from high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The high flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. Goettig heat treats his blades with a cryogenic treatment to ensure a high performing 63 Hrc.
The handle is made from Shokwood. The dramatic and strong handle combines red translucent acrylic resin with stabilized maple burl wood. Black G-10 spacers separate the scales from the full tang. This ensures strength, durability, and one heck of a beautiful handle. The handle is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip.
This kiritsuke chef's knife is perfectly balanced and will make chopping truly enjoyable!
