Description: The chef's knife is the primary knife used in the kitchen, easily handling almost all culinary tasks. This 8-1/2 inch chef's knife by Dale Miller is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's plenty curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to its versatility. Whether slicing, chopping or dicing, this chef's knife is sure to be a favorite in your kitchen!
Miller's attention to detail shines through this elegant kitchen knife. The 8-1/2 inch long blade was forged to shape Dale's own damascus, incorporating from 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The bolster and blade are integral, showing Miller's tremendous skill at the forge. The high contrast Paisley pattern immediately grabs attention and ensures a keen, long lasting edge. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The blade features an S-Grind. A convex ground edge provides high performance chopping with lots of strength. From there, it moves into a concave and the blade moves toward the spine. This technique lightens the overall weight without sacrificing strength. The combination ensures a high performing workhorse with virtually no resistance cutting through foods that would otherwise stick or wedge.
Handle scales are formed from a section of historic dyer oak burl. The dyer oak burl is from the largest known oak burl harvested in the Pacific Northwest, which weighed 28,900 lbs. Spacers formed from gabon ebony (Diospyros crassiflorai) and polished elk antler add a nice contrast. A section of gabon ebony is also inlaid across the top of the handle. The gloss handle is finished with ten coats of Tru-Oil for a long lasting, resilient handle. The handle is nicely contoured a a secure, comfortable grip, even after hours of use. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
Exceptional work throughout.
