Description: Washington knifemaker, C. Luis Pina, is an exceptional bladesmith and specializes in kitchen knives. He apprenticed under Mastersmith David Lisch. David's eye for design clearly shines through Luis' work on this tremendous boning/fillet knife. Additionally, Luis' past career as a chef provides him with an understanding of chef's knives that is rarely found in other bladesmiths.
Chef's knives are the general purpose knife in the kitchen. From slicing tomatoes to chopping onions, this knife will get the task done perfectly. It is sure to be a kitchen favorite.
Luis began forging this integral chef's knife beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The mosaic damascus is immediately captivating and draws attention for closer examination. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. By forging closely to shape, he ensures optimal grain structure for a keen, long lasting edge. A convex grind ensures excellent food release.
The handle is formed from stabilized presentation grade curly mango wood. The right handed D-shape handle is extremely comfortable and the knife is well balanced. The integral bolster is contoured for a comfortable pinch grip. A black G10 spacer assists the wood in adjusting to humidity changes.
Excellent work throughout!
