Description: Charlie Ellis first struck hot steel in 2005 and has since traveled from Maine to North Carolina in pursuit of the perfect blade. In 2007, he enrolled in the Hand Wrought Metals program at Haywood College in Clyde, North Carolina. There, he learned a great deal from David Burnette, Mastersmith Jason Knight, as well as a host of others through the school's partnership with the American Bladesmith Society. Since 2014, he has been a full time blacksmith living in the mountains of western North Carolina with his wife and son. Lately Charlie has been focusing on chef knives and his results have been excellent!
The 8 inch blade is AEB-L stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. AEB-L is ultra high performance -- combining the convenience of stainless steel with the ability to take an acute edge and hold it (a characteristic usually only found in carbon steels). AEB-L steel was designed for razors, which need corrosion resistance, high hardness, and very acute edges. Once you try a knife that is made with AEB-L, you'll immediately understand why it is coveted by knife enthusiasts, knifemakers, and professional chefs. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge. The distal tapered blade creates a perfect balance. Corners of the spine are rounded for comfort.
The western style handle is green G-carta, secured to the distal tapered full tang using brass pins. The sculpted handle is comfortable in both a pinch grip and a full handle grip. Brown liners nicely complement the G-carta scales. This knife is perfect for those that prefer a slightly larger handle.
A zipper case with Charlie's logo is included to safely store the knife.
Excellent work throughout!
