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.
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.
The san mai style blade combines a central core formed from powdered metallurgical stainless and softer, supportive 410 stainless steel sides. This technique ensures superior edge holding, with a more resilient blade. A distal taper ensures optimal balance.
The octagonal handle combines presentation grade buckeye burl with jet black micarta. The black micarta nicely complements the dark tones in the burl.
Exceptional work throughout!
