Description: This exceptional handmade chef's knife is the work of knifemaker, John Leitch. It is accompanied by a wood presentation stand. An inlaid Earth magnet makes the knife easily stay attached to the stand and keeps it conveniently close by..
The ATS-34 stainless steel blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding. Leitch is well known for his deeply acid etched blades. The etching is both visually exciting and provides a surface that resists sticking to the food being chopped. The handle is made from warm toned kingwood. This elegant handle has warm brown tones with darker chocolate lines traveling across the surface. It is finished off with mosaic pins and polished brass bolsters. Exceptional work throughout.
