Description: Washington knifemaker, C. Luis Pina, is an exceptional bladesmith and specializes in kitchen knives. He is currently apprenticing under Mastersmith David Lisch. David's eye for design clearly shines through Luis' work on this tremendous chef's knife. Additionally, Luis' past career as a chef provides him with an understanding of chef's knives that is rarely found.
The nakiri chef's knife is a traditional Japanese knife form ideal for chopping and slicing fruits and vegetables, as well as boneless meats. 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.
Luis began forging this integral nakiri beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The fine patterned damascus is immediately captivating and draws attention for closer examination. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. By forging closely to shape, he ensures optimal grain structure for a keen, long lasting edge. The blade is beautifully thin for clean, perfect cuts.
The handle is formed from presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood. It is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip - swelling at the palm, moving into a slimmer waist, and swelling again at the end of the handle. Ironwood will hold up beautifully to hard use, though this knife would feel at home in most any collection. Thin black G10 and nickel silver spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes in the kitchen.
The bolster is fully integral to the blade, with the damascus pattern moving seamlessly from bolster to blade. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith.
Exceptional work throughout!
