Description: This exceptional damascus chef's knife was made by Ohio bladesmith Justin Chenault. Justin started making knives in 2005. His first foray into smithing was in a high school class where he was tasked with forging a hatchet for camping. After graduating high school Justin assembled the basics of his own blacksmith's shop. He quickly joined the Southern Ohio Forge Associate (SOFA) which helped him connect with other smiths. Justin is a journeyman smith with the American Bladesmith Society. He won Season 7, Episode 6 of Forged in Fire, proving his skills on national television. This Mosaic Damascus Chef's Knife is among his master works to date!
The 8 inch mosaic damascus blade is forged from 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels. The intricate pattern is extremely detailed and shows Justin's skills at their best. A deep etch gives the steel plenty of contrast and helps provide a rough surface for food realize. The flat ground blade provides excellent chip resistance and is razor sharp. Justin's mark is on the left side of the blade.
The Japanese inspired handle is amboyna burl. This beautiful section of amboyna combines both heartwood and sap wood creating a particularly dramatic appearance. Blackened zirconium bolsters are nicely sculpted to comfortably accommodate a pinch grip. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is resistant to corrosion and scuffing. This is a knife that is sure to become a kitchen favorite - you won't want to put it down!
Excellent work throughout!
