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.
The nakiri usuba is a traditional Japanese knife shape ideal for chopping fruit and vegetables. The edge is double beveled, like a Western knife. Though sometimes called a vegetable cleaver, the thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a Japanese equivalent to meat cleavers.
The blade is formed from high performing 1095 carbon steel. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, it needs to be oiled and dried before being put away. Though this does require a slight change in habits, many chefs feel this is well worth the performance improvement. We recommend using camellia oil to oil both the blade. A forced mustard patina provides an elegant appearance. The convex grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry with good food release. Goettig heat treats his blades with a cryogenic treatment to ensure a high performing 61 Hrc. Both the spine and choil are nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
The handle is made from burlap Micarta. This handle will hold up beautifully to the high demands of either a home or professional kitchen. Black G-10 spacers separate the scales from the full tang. This ensures strength, durability, and one heck of a beautiful handle. Copper in the Loveless style rivets brings out warm tones in the natural wood. The handle is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
This chef's knife is perfectly balanced and will make chopping truly enjoyable!
