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 all 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 7 inch damascus blade is made from 125 layers of alternating 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels providing the excellent edge retention and chip resistance that a high performance knife needs. The spine and choil are 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 formed from dyed and stabilized black ash burl secured with a mosaic pin. Ironwood, brass and G-10 spacers will help the handle adjust to humidity and temperature changes in the kitchen. The handle is extremely comfortable whether holding the knife in a pinch grip or holding it further back on the handle. This is sure to become your go-to knife in the kitchen!
Excellent work throughout!
