Description: Jim's knives are excellent pieces for the chef that wants a knife that is as attractive as it is useful. 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 was forged to shape from 52100 carbon steels. Many knife enthusiasts as well as makers believe this to be among the best steels available for knives. The blade as hand satin finished. It is triple tempered to Rc 59-60 for excellent edge retention. A distal taper results in an optimal balance. Excellent work throughout.
