Description: Handmade by Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle, this knife is an exceptional carving knife or meat slicer. It is literally one-of-a-kind and immediately grabs attention. The long, slender blade is perfect for carving birds, ham, and roasts.
The 7-2/3 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 spine is slightly rounded for a comfortable grip.
The contoured grips are formed from presentation grade box elder burl. By stabilizing the wood, Jim ensures that they will hold up well to the demanding environment of either a home or commercial kitchen. The tang is hand fileworked in a modified serpentine pattern between the grips. A deep choil provides a comfortable, secure place to rest the first finger. The handle allows for several different grips and makes the knife easy to maneuver even with slippery hands. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
