Description: Blayde Barnett is the adult son of Australia knifemaker Bruce Barnett. Over the last few years, Blayde has been making some amazing knives. Chef knives are quickly becoming his favorite style of knife to make and this chef's knife is an exceptional example of his clean work.
The blade is satin 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 blade features a meticulous hand rubbed satin finish. The spine and choil are rounded for additional comfort. Blayde's mark is on the left side of the blade.
Handle scales are ringed gidgee secured to the full tang using Corby bolts. Ringed gidgee (Acacia cambagei) is an exceptional wood for knife handles and is considered to be one of Australia's most beautiful timbers. It has tremendous stability even when exposed to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. It is among the densest woods in the world and has a beautiful curl similar to Hawaiian koa. The scales are fit perfectly to polished stainless steel bolsters. This is a knife you won't want to put down.
Excellent work throughout!
