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 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 9-1/4 inch, damascus san mai blade was hand forged. An SG-2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel core is surrounded by alternating layers of nickel and stainless steel. SG2 is a super-steel created by Takefu in Japan. It ensures exceptional edge holding with a keen, superior edge. A deep etch results in an uneven surface on the side of the blade 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!
