Description: C. Luis Pina, is an exceptional bladesmith and specializes in kitchen knives. He apprenticed under Mastersmith David Lisch. Luis' past career as a chef provides him with an understanding of culinary knives that is rarely found in other bladesmiths.
Chef's knives are the general purpose knife in the kitchen. From slicing tomatoes to chopping onions, this knife will get the task done perfectly. It is sure to be a kitchen favorite.
Pina began forging this integral chef's knife beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The bold Ws pattern damascus is immediately captivating and draws attention for closer examination. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. By forging closely to shape, he ensures optimal grain structure for a keen, long lasting edge.
The bolster is fully integral to the blade. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith.
Presentation grade curly koa handle scales are set on the full tang, ensuring strength and durability. The integral bolster brings weight back into the handle. This knife is so comfortable, you won't want to put it down! Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
