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 52100 carbon steel. Many knife users and knifemakers feel that 52100 is among the best steels currently used to make knives. It provides a super-keen cutting edge that won't quit. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. Blair created a resist on the blade and deeply etched it. This deep etch provides a slightly uneven surface, which encourages slices to fall away from the side of the knife rather than sticking.
The handle is made from stabilized spalted alder set on a full tang. This wood has dramatic light and dark striations. Black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. The handle is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
The knife is perfectly balanced and will make chopping truly enjoyable!
