Description: Tom Buckner, out of Olympia, Washington, makes an amazing culinary knife. He has a tremendous fit and finish and well tested designs.
Utility knives are perfect for slicing produce, meats, and fish – an ideal general purpose knife for detailed slicing in the kitchen. Smaller than a chef's knife, but bigger than a paring knife, you'll find this utility knife is so useful that it may become your goto knife in the kitchen.
The blade is high performing CPM S35VN stainless steel. CPM-S35VN is an American-made and developed premium grade stainless steel created especially for knives. It is a powdered metallurgical (PM) steel with a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties. This gives the blade superior corrosion resistance, toughness, and edge retention. The high flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish.
The handle is made from stabilized and dyed spalted maple (Acer saccharum). Dark spalting lines travel across the dark green wood. Scales are set with a central mosaic pin and two stainless steel hidden bolt rivets. A 416 stainless steel bolster seals the front of the handle. White fiber spacers separate the scales from the full tang. This assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The rounded handle is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
This utility knife is accompanied by a custom maple saya to help protect the edge during transport and storage.
Excellent work throughout!
