Description: Handmade by Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle, this knife is an excellent piece for the chef that wants a knife that is as attractive as it is useful. This is a one-of-a-kind piece - consider it your chance to own a piece of truly beautiful utilitarianism.
It utilizes a deep choil (cut-out) for the forefinger to rest in. This makes the knife easy to grasp, even with slippery hands. The blade is made from D2 tool steel and is given a hand-rubbed satin finish. It is hardened and double tempered to Rc 58-59 for excellent edge retention.
Contoured cocobolo grips surround a full tang. The handle provides several different grip options. It has modified serpentine filework along the tang. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
