Description: This chef's knife was made by Leo Potter of Red Forge. Potter is 24 years old, hails from New Hampshire, and is a current American Bladesmith Society apprentice. He began bladesmithing in 2016 and started making kitchen knives in 2019. He has taken several classes at the New England School of Metalwork in bladesmithing and blacksmithing. Outside of bladesmithing, Leo works as a blacksmith and tool maker.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for chopping vegetables and slicing meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is ideal for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The 6-1/2 inch blade is made from Potter's own hand forged damascus. Leo began with 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The pattern combines bold and fine patterns to create a blade that will pull you in for closer examination. Because this knife is made from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to oil the blade and stabilized wood handle.
Stabilized curly mango wood handle scales are set on a canvas Micarta frame for strength and durability. The handle is well contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. Stainless steel Coby bolts set the handle in place. The front of the handle is sealed with a nickel silver spacer. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
This chef's knife is sure to become your goto knife.
