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 custom chef's knife 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 to shape. Takefu VToku2 carbon steel is tremendously high performing, with an extremely keen edge. Stainless steel surrounds the carbon steel core to provide easier maintenance and care. The top of the blade is forge finished. The sides feature an s-grind to provide great food release and clean slicing. Because this knife is made from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to oil the blade.
The handle combines orange, black, and brown G-carta made by G.L. Hansen & Sons with a black G-10 ferrule. Orange and black fiber spacers create a nice transition point between the two materials. The handle is hand contoured to provide a comfortable grip. This is a knife that you won't want to put down!
Excellent work throughout!
