Description: This elegant chef's knife was made by Brent Stubblefield, founder of Join or Die Knives. Stubblefield is a native of Mobile, Alabama. He has lived with his family in Richmond, Virginia since 2009. He started as a hobbyist knifemaker in the early 2000s -- inspired by the combined skills of woodworking, metalsmithing, and leatherworking -- and founded Join or Die Knives in 2014. Join or Die Knives derives its name from Ben Franklin's famous woodcut published in his Pennsylvania Gazette in 1754. Franklin's message was that it takes vulnerability to be a community, which is why Stubblefield creates knives -- helping others to come together, build up, and grow stronger together. Stubblefield was featured in Season 2 of Forged in Fire.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long blade is well suited for chopping vegetables and slicing meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. Whether chopping fruits and vegetables or slicing meats, this chef's knife will do it all.
The blade is satin finished Nitro-V stainless steel. Nitro-V is a martensitic stainless steel with a chromium-based composition created by the New Jersey Steel Baron company. Nitrogen and vanadium have been added to the composition of AEB-L to improve edge performance. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge and is just as tough or tougher than similar carbon steels while being completely stainless. The Join or Die mark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is dyed and stabilized curly maple, secured to the full tang using two mosaic pins and a nickel silver front pin. By using stabilized wood, Brent ensures the knife will hold up to the harsh demands of the professional kitchen. Blue fiber liners complement the blue dyed scales and will help the wood adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The sculpted handle provides excellent grip and is extremely comfortable.
Excellent work throughout!
