Description: If you spend any time in the kitchen, would like to have a knife that is as attractive as it is useful, and don't want the typical off-the shelf chef's knives, check out this handmade beauty by Jim Arbuckle. This chef's knife will quickly become your go-to knife in the kitchen. It is well suited to slicing and chopping.
The deep blade provides plenty of finger clearance so your knuckles don't hit the cutting board while copping. It utilizes a very deep choil (cut-out) for the forefinger to rest in. This makes the knife easy to hold onto even with slippery hands.
The blade is made from 154CM, high carbon stainless steel. It is hardened and triple tempered to Hrc 59-60, then hand rubbed to an heirloom quality satin finish. The spine is nicely rounded for a more comfortable grip. A distal taper to the blade ensures perfect balance.
Presentation grade curly koa (Acacia Koa) scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. The tang features modified bamboo filework filled with black resin. This allows the beauty of filework without the worry of food getting into the recesses.
Exceptional work throughout!
