Description: Michael Rader, who was honored as a mastersmith June 2010, is best known for creating dramatic swords, daggers and chef's knives -- in each case with woodwork that is beyond compare. His understanding of chef's knives is exceptional and results in perfect balance and geometry.
The European chef's knife (known as a gyuto in Japan) is well suited for use as a general purpose knife in the kitchen -- from chopping, to slicing and dicing -- from fruits to vegetables and meats, the chef's knife is a great choice. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and vegetables while the tall blade provides plenty of finger clearance when working over a cutting board.
The blade has been antiqued. This attractive finish helps prevent rust and makes the knife easy to maintain. The blade and bolster are formed from 52100 carbon steel. Many knifemakers and collectors feel that this steel is among the best steels currently used for knives due to its exceptional edge holding and sharpness. Because this knife is forged from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to prevent rust. The bolster is integral -- a technique that, while common in production knives, is very rare in handmade knives due to the difficulty of implementation. Like his hunting knives, this chef's knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly.
The handle is formed from curly mango with lighter box elder burl and curly koa wood accents. By using stabilized woods, Michael is able to combine the beauty of natural wood with durability. Alternating copper and G10 spacers highlight warm tones in the natural wood. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
