Description: This chef's knife is the work of Canadian bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. The maker's mark on Kelly's knives is his family's cattle brand, which has been passed down to his dad by his grandmother. He thought that when he started to make knives, he would use something that stood the test of time to mark them. With this brand on his knives and the craftsmanship that he put into them, he knows they will stand the test of time long after he is gone.
This small chef's knife is likely to become one of the primary knives used in your kitchen. Whether chopping onions, mincing garlic, or slicing meats, this knife will be a great choice.
The blade is hand forged from 304 layers of 1080C and 15N20 carbon steels. This ensures a keen edge as well as exceptional beauty! A clear differential heat treatment is visible in the blade which results in a long lasting edge with strength and durability from the spine. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
Ironwood scales are set on a full tang with mosaic pins. The knife has great balance and feels exceptional in the hand. Damascus bolsters are dovetailed to the ironwood ensuring a perfect fit. Textured copper inlays both provide a superior grip and bring out warm tones in the natural wood.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
