Description: I've been watching David Tuthill's work develop for quite a number of years. He's been a blacksmith for many years, creating elegant ornamental work. His attention to detail and skills in the forge have quickly brought him to create truly world class chef's knives.
This knife will be a perfect 'go to' knife in the kitchen. The 5-1/4 inch blade is a perfect size and shape to get most any task done exceptionally well. It is a great size for the chef that prefers a smaller, more dextrous knife. A gentle arc to the blade's edge makes this a perfect knife for both a rocking chop and a forward slice. Whether chopping onions, slicing tomatoes, mincing parsley, or portioning and slicing meats, this elegant chef's knife is sure to become your 'go-to' knife in the kitchen.
Tuthill forged the blade from his own highly detailed Argyle pattern mosaic damascus. The intricate pattern combines bold and fine details. Creating such a complex pattern with an integral guard shows David's tremendous skill at the forge.
The contoured stabilized and dyed beefwood (Grevillea striata) handle has elegant, angular grinds that encourages a pinch grip, though it is also comfortable in a handle-grip. A silicon bronze spacer is surrounded by thinner black vulcanized fiber spacers. These spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes in the kitchen. This is an extremely comfortable handle … you won't want to put it down!
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
