Description: Prior to starting Sea Rose Knifeworks, Sasha Rosenfeld was a professional cook in Seattle for 15 years. When he made the move from chef de cuisine to stay-at-home dad and part time prep cook, he began taking blacksmithing classing and began forging his first kitchen knives in his backyard while he daughter was napping. In the fall of 2018, Rosenfeld decided to step away from professional kitchens for good and opened Sea Rose Knifeworks.
This knife will be a perfect 'go to' knife in the kitchen. The 7-1/2 inch blade is a perfect size and shape to get most any task done exceptionally well. It is among the most used chef's knife sizes. 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.
The blade was hand forged from 1084 carbon steel. A Fujiwara-inspired finger notch encourages a pinch grip for greater control. The blade has tremendous, thin geometry and will effortless slice and chop. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The handle is contoured from stabilized Tasmanian blackwood. Tasmanian blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) is native to Tasmania and eastern Australia. Although called “blackwood,” the name is somewhat of a misnomer, as its wood is not at all black. Rather, its lustrous golden brown grain and figure is very similar to Hawaiian curly koa. The wood has has a convoluted figure and warm tones. Alternating nickel silver and black G10 spacers surround a section of black buffalo horn. This is an extremely comfortable handle. You won't want to put it down, even after hours of use.
Exceptional work throughout!
