Description: David Tuthill has been a blacksmith for many years, creating elegant ornamental work. Over the last few years, his attention to detail and skills in the forge have quickly brought him to create truly world class chef's knives.
This bunka chef's knife will be an exceptional multipurpose chef's knife. From mincing and chopping garlic or chives, to preparing full meals, this will be your go-to knife! The blade height gives plenty of clearance over a cutting board, while the 6-1/8 inch blade is easy to maneuver.
The blade was forged from David's own Ladder pattern damascus, combining 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The deeply etched damascus will facilitate better food release. The top of the blade features an elegant forge finish. This knife is light and nimble. The distal tapered blade provides perfect balance. At 6-1/8 inches, it is easy to maneuver, yet large enough to get most any job done. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The ambidextrous Japanese-inspired half octagonal handle is faceted at the top and rounded at the base. This shape is among the most comfortable of traditional Japanese handle styles. The handle combines stabilized bigleaf maple wood with a black buffalo horn ferrule.
Exceptional work throughout!
