Description: Blair Todd, out of Gresham, Oregon, makes an amazing culinary knife. Todd has been a full time maker since 2014. He is quickly becoming well known for his high performance chef's knives.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The blade is formed from high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The high flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. Blair created a resist on the blade and deeply etched it. This deep etch provides a slightly uneven surface, which encourages slices to fall away from the side of the knife rather than sticking.
The handle is made from Shokwood. The dramatic and strong handle combines blue acrylic resin with stabilized maple burl wood. The scales are set on a full tang. This ensures strength, durability, and one heck of a beautiful handle. The handle is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip.
The knife is perfectly balanced and will make chopping truly enjoyable!
