Description: Aaron Wilburn, a long time maker of knives for the outdoor enthusiast, has expanded his focus to include culinary knives - creating high-performing kitchen workhorses! This piece, modeled on the Japanese Kiritsuke Gyuto, is longer than the Japanese santoku and is sure to become a cherished primary chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and the distal taper ensures perfect balance.
The 7-3/4 inch blade has a perfect arc for chopping and slicing. It is beautifully light and nimble. The damascus blade incorporates 52100 and 15N20 carbon steels, forming a bold, dramatic feather pattern. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, it must be dried and oiled after use to avoid rust. We recommend using camellia oil for ease of care.
The handle is contoured into a traditional, elegant d-shape. Front and rear nickel silver fittings surround ebony and quilted buckthorn (Cascara sagrada). The bright toned Cascara is nicely contrasted by jet black ebony. By using stabilized woods, Aaron ensures that the knife will hold up well to the heavy demands of either a professional or home kitchen. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
