Description: Devin Thomas is probably best known for his exquisite damascus steel -- what is less well known is that he is also an exceptional knifemaker that specializes in chef's knives. When he combines his artistry with damascus with his skill at making kitchen knives, the results are truly exceptional!
The European chef's knife (known as a gyuto in Japan) is well suited for use as a general purpose chef's knife -- from chopping, to slicing and dicing, the chef's knife is a great choice. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and vegetables and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance right.
This long damascus blade has tremendous impact! The bold chevron pattern shows Devin's exceptional control at the forge. The pattern is incredibly perfect. The dramatic steel combines CPM 3-V and 154 CPM and ensures exceptional edge holding. A distal taper creates optimal balance.
The octagonal handle combines presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood with a wrapped mokume gane ferrule. The mokume has damascene lines forged from copper, brass and nickel silver. Warm tones in the mokume highlight the dramatic, grain in the ironwood.
Exceptional work throughout!
