Description: Journeyman Smith Erik Fritz has been working on chef's knife the last couple years and his latest knives have been amazing!
This high performance sujihiki is well suited for slicing and portioning meats and fish due to the slender, long blade. Extremely sharp, it is also well suited to preparing sushi and sashimi.
The 10 inch, damascus san mai blade was hand forged. A VG-10 core is surrounded by alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel. A deep etch results in an uneven surface which helps food slice away from the side of the knife. It is nicely distal tapered for optimal balance.
The traditional Japanese octagonal handle is formed from Macassar ebony (Diospyros celebica). This south east Asian hardwood has warm tones and a gently turning, straight grain. A pakkawood ferrule and a stainless steel spacer add excellent contrast. This traditional handle is very comfortable when used for extended periods and is a perfect choice for either professional or home kitchens. This nimble knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
Exceptional work throughout!
