Description: This exceptional handmade chef's knife is the work of bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. It is a perfect choice for chopping and slicing and is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen. This is a perfect choice for a chef looking for a high performance knife that is heavier than a Japanese knife.
The blade was forged to shape from Kelly's own damascus. It is a bold, high contrast ladder pattern that immediately captures attention. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance and is brought to a razor sharp edge. 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.
Arizona desert ironwood scales are set on a full tang with mosaic pins. Stainless steel bolsters are dovetailed to the ironwood ensuring a perfect fit.
Exceptional fit throughout.
