Description: This chef's knife is the work of Canadian bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. The maker's mark on Kelly's knives is his family's cattle brand, which has been passed down to his dad by his grandmother. When he started to make knives, he thought he would use something that stood the test of time to mark them. With this brand on his knives and the craftsmanship that he put into them, he knows they will stand the test of time long after he is gone.
This chef's knife is likely to become one of the primary knives used in your kitchen. The 6-1/2 inch blade has a nice arc for both slicing and a rocking chop. Whether chopping onions, mincing garlic, or slicing meats, this knife will be a great choice. It is a perfect size for the cook who prefers a smaller, more easy to maneuver chef's knife.
The bold wood grain pattern damascus blade is hand forged from alternating layers of 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. This ensures a keen edge as well as exceptional beauty! A clear differential heat treatment is visible in the blade which results in a long lasting edge with strength and durability from the supportive spine. Because the blade is made from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to oil both the blade and natural wood handle.
Handle scales are made from kingwood set to a full tang using two mosaic pins. A true rosewood, kingwood is harvested from a small tree called Dalbergia cearensis that is restricted to a small area in Brazil. Extremely rare, kingwood was famous for being used in the finest furniture in the world during the 17th century that was often only sold to royalty. The scales are dovetailed to 416 stainless steel bolsters. The handle feels great and has nice balance. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
