Description: This elegant chef's knife was made by Brent Stubblefield. 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 slicing vegetables and 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 onions 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 created by the New Jersey Steel Baron company. Nitrogen and vanadium were 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 Arizona desert ironwood secured to the full tang using two mosaic pins and a nickel silver front pin. The scales meet perfectly with black richlite bolsters and a turquoise spacer. Thin red fiber liners complement the ironwood scales and will help the natural wood adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The sculpted handle provides a sure grip and is extremely comfortable.
Excellent work throughout!
