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 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 62 Hrc.
The handle is made from Shokwood. The dramatic and strong handle combines blue 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 contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
This chef's nakiri is perfectly balanced and will make chopping and slicing truly enjoyable!
