Description: Oregon bladesmith Joe Edson specializes in straight razors and kitchen knives. As such, it's not surprising that his high performing chef's knives are razor sharp!
This is the place to start your carbon steel knife collection. This custom chef's knife by Joe Edson is a perfect 'go to' knife. It's used for all-around food preparation. This deep bellied chef's knife is a perfect knife to grab whether slicing onions or chopping peppers. The tall profile gives plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board for a rocking chop. Once you try one of Edson's knives, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
Joe began by forging a bar of san mai steel. Takefu VToku2 carbon steel steel is tremendously high performing, with an extremely keen edge. Stainless steel surrounds the carbon steel core to provide easier maintenance and care. Because this knife's core is forged from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust. The top of the blade is forge finished. The sides feature an s-grind to provide great food release and clean slicing.
The handle combines stabilized blue curly maple with spacers formed from tiger coral. The combination is extremely engaging! It is contoured for a secure, comfortable pinch grip. The handle is so comfortable, you won't want to put this one down.
Exceptional work throughout!
