Description: Fruit knives are utility knives that are perfect for slicing fruit and other detail tasks. The thin blade is slightly longer than that of a petty knife, with most fruit knives ranging from 5 - 6 inches.
Construction of the blade begins with bundles of special alloy stainless steel wire which are repeatedly folded together and forge-welded by hand. This time consuming process creates a Jigane (the outside layers of the blade) with a beautiful damascus pattern. The maker than begins preparation of the Hagane (the middle layer of the blade) by hand forging high carbon steel, alloyed with cobalt. The basic construction of the blade is competed by forge-welding the Hagane between two layers of Jigane. Following in the best tradition of knife making, a steel ferrule is forge-welded to the tang to ensure that food particles can not become lodged between the tang and the handle. The handle, made from multiple layers of wood impregnated with resin, is riveted to the full length tang and will last a lifetime. The blades are fully honed.
The handle was formed by bladesmith Daniel O'Malley from exhibition grade ironwood. The hard-wearing wood will hold up well in the demanding environment of either a commercial or home kitchen. A single piece of ironwood is cut so as to have the wood's unmistakable grain pattern travel across the tang. Mr. O'Malley has profiled the handle to be very comfortable and provide the chef with a secure grip. Two stainless steel hidden bolt rivets and an elegant stainless steel and copper mosaic pin secure the scales to the tang. The rivets have been profiled to match the wood - the seam is imperceptible. This is a knife both high-performing and elegant!
