Description: Burls & Steel is a husband and wife team based in Charleston, South Carolina. They work together to create unique, one-of-a-kind knives using old world techniques and adding a touch of modern flair. Ben Spurrier is the bladesmith who creates all of the knives and his wife Sydney handles the marketing and photography. We were very pleased to meet Ben at Blade Show 2021 and are excited to carry a variety of their high quality work!
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. Whether chopping fruits and vegetables, or slicing meats, this chef's knife will do it all.
The 8 inch damascus blade is hand forged from 125 layers of 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels, providing the excellent edge retention and chip resistance that a high performance knife needs. The spine and choil have been nicely rounded to accomodate a comfortable pinch grip. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The handle is dyed black ash burl, secured to the tang using a central mosaic pin. The handle is hand contoured to provide a comfortable grip and encourages the using to move their hand forward into a pinch grip. The handle is finished with white G-10 and brass spacers which will help the wood adjust to temperature and humidity changes in the kitchen. This is an excellent daily use chef knife that you will find yourself reaching for every time you need to cook!
Excellent work throughout!
