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. The K-tip design provides a strong, detail-oriented tip.
Pina began forging this integral chef's knife beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The fine patterned mosaic 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 blade is beautifully thin for clean, perfect cuts.
The bolster is fully integral to the blade, with the damascus pattern moving seamlessly from bolster to blade. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith.
The ambidextrous hand contoured handle is formed from presentation grade black maple. Alternating black G-10 and brass spacers help the wood adjust to the humidity and temperature changes in the kitchen. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
