Description: Handmade by Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle, this fine point slicer is a perfect choice for slicing in the kitchen. Fine cuts of fruits and vegetables are a breeze. The slender shape also makes this a great choice when removing silver skin from meat.
The 4-3/4 inch blade is formed from high performing ATS-34 stainless steel. It is hardened and double tempered to 58-59 Hrc. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality. The blade is convex ground to minimize food sticking to the blade. This technique is much more effective than a granton edge!
The contoured grips are formed from presentation grade snakeskin sycamore. By stabilizing the wood, Jim ensures that they will hold up well to the demanding environment of either a home or commercial kitchen. A deep choil provides a comfortable, secure place to rest the 1st finger. The handle allows for several different grips and makes the knife easy to maneuver even with slippery hands. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
