Description: Tom Buckner, out of Olympia, Washington, makes an amazing culinary knife. He has a tremendous fit and finish and well tested designs.
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. At 7-3/4 inches, it is easy to maneuver safely and effortlessly. This is a perfect choice for the chef that wants an ultra-high performing knife, yet wants the easy care of stainless steel.
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 flat grind provides a very efficient cutting geometry. The spine is nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
The handle is made from dramatic blue acrylic. White fiber spacers separate the scales from the full tang. The contoured handle is nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable grip. Scales are set with a central mosaic pin and two stainless steel hidden bolt rivets. A contoured 416 stainless steel bolster seals the front of the handle.
This chef's knife is accompanied by a custom black Richlite saya. The lock pin is engineered to remain on the saya so that it is not easily lost.
Excellent work throughout!
