Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a flair for design and a passion for making knives. This k-tip chef's knife will be a kitchen favorite. The high performance knife will do a great job, whether slicing meats, chopping vegetables, or mincing herbs.
The blade was forged by Owen Bush in the UK. The damascus combines carbon steels into a complex wood grain pattern. The blade is convex ground for effortless cutting with easy food release.
The handle combines Steller's sea cow bone with mammoth ivory. Steller's sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas) is an extinct, large sirenian mammal formerly found near the Asiatic coast of the Bering Sea. It was discovered in the Commander Islands in 1741 by the German naturalist Georg Steller, who was traveling with the explorer Vitus Bering. Through an unfortunate combination of being slow, large, and very good tasting, by 1768, less than 30 years after it had been discovered, Steller's sea cow was extinct. The handle is nicely contoured to provide a secure, comfortable grip.
To keep the knife protected during transportation, Greger has included a hand stitched custom leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
