Description: Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle resides in Yorktown, VA. He started making knives in 1979 and has been forging knives since 1996. Growing up in Washington State, he spent most weekends hunting and fishing and has a great understanding of what features make a knife perform. Jim also makes elegant, high performing kitchen knives designed for daily use, but would easily impress any professional chef.
This high performance carving knife is well suited to all sorts of slicing tasks in the kitchen. From slicing and portioning meats and fish to carving roasts for holiday dinner, this knife is a perfect choice!
The 7-3/4 inch blade is high performing, low care 154CM stainless steel. It has an heirloom quality hand-rubbed satin finish and was hardened and triple tempered to Rc 59-60 for excellent edge retention. The blade is distal tapered, ensuring it is nimble and easy to control.
Curly maple scales are set on the full tang using three pins. Modified serpentine filework between the scales is filled with black epoxy and polished. This gives the beauty of filework without the hassle of cleaning food particles out of it. The handle is contoured with a deep choil - this semi-circular cut-out allows the forefinger to rest comfortably and makes the knife easy to hold in several different grip options. This knife is sure to become a family heirloom!
Excellent work throughout!
