Description: This exceptional damascus chef's knife was made by Ohio bladesmith Justin Chenault. Justin started making knives in 2005. Chenault's first foray into smithing was in a high school class where he was tasked with forging a hatchet for camping. After graduating high school Justin assembled the basics of his own blacksmith's shop. He quickly joined the Southern Ohio Forge Associate (SOFA) which helped him connect with other smiths. Justin is a journeyman smith with the American Bladesmith Society. He won Season 7, Episode 6 of Forged in Fire, proving his skills on national television.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The 8-1/2 inch blade is easily controlled, while the extra-tall blade gives plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. From chopping to slicing, this will be your go-to knife.
The broad, spearpoint blade was forged to shape from Justin's own damascus. By combining 1095 and 15N20 carbon steels, Justin ensures a keen, long lasting edge. The laddered Ws pattern has tremendous complexity and immediately grabs attention. Chenault's maker's mark is on the left side.
The handle is stabilized red mallee burl (Eucalyptus oleosa). This Australian presentation grade wood has a tremendous, swirling figure with a pleasing warm tone. A copper pin highlights warm tones in the wood. An antiqued copper guard makes a perfect transition between handle and blade.
This exceptional chef's knife is sure to become a family heirloom. Exceptional work throughout!
