Description: Blair Todd, out of Gresham, Oregon, makes an amazing culinary knife. Todd has been a full time maker since 2014. He is quickly becoming well known for his high performance chef's knives.
This high performance 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 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. The blade features a meticulous heirloom quality hand rubbed satin finish.
The handle is made from red palm (Cocos nucifera). The stabilized wood combines black and brown fibers for a dramatic appearance. A front 'bolster' is formed from natural canvas Micarta. A black fiber spacer separates 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.
The knife is perfectly balanced and will make chopping truly enjoyable!
