Description: Dave Loukides began making knives in 2001. He brought many skills from his 30 year occupation as a machinist. Dave is now a full time knife maker and was awarded Journeyman Smith at the 2011 Atlanta Blade Show. It has been a pleasure watching Dave move up in the ranks of knife makers and we look forward to seeing what he has for us in the future.
This chef's knife is a perfect choice to grab when slicing and chopping -- an ideal general purpose knife in the kitchen. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to slice meats and vegetables and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance perfect.
Dave Loukides began this knife by forging the 1084 carbon steel to shape. This ensures optimal grain structure and a keen, long lasting edge. Both the blade and tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality.
The cocobolo handle is set on a distal tapered full tang. Mosaic pins complete the handle. Excellent work throughout!
