Description: Handmade by Jim Arbuckle, this knife is an excellent piece for the chef that wants a knife that is as attractive as it is useful. One in the world. It utilizes a 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 ATS-34 stainless steel and is given a hand-rubbed satin finish. It is hardened and double tempered to Rc 58-59 for excellent edge retention. It has modified bamboo filework along the spine, which is not only decorative but adds a non-slip area on the back of the blade to rest the thumb. The blade has been distal tapered for optimal balance. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
