Description: Martin Huber hails from Austria and is considered one of the greatest chef's knife makers from that region. His father, mother, and grandfather all had blacksmithing and metalworking experience, which lead to Martin learning the trade at a young age. Martin took four years of formal blacksmith instruction in his home town of Steyr, Austria before opening up his own shop in 2016. Martin's kitchen knives have well thought out designs and efficient cutting geometry.
The blade is hand forged 1.2419 carbon tool steel. 1.2419 is a low-alloy tool steel containing tungsten and chromium. It achieves a working hardness of 64 Hrc and maintains high wear resistance. This makes it an excellent steel for kitchen knives and outdoor knives. The forge finish along the spine will help with food release. Both the spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort. This knife has beautifully thin geometry for high performance cutting ability.
The ambidextrous Japanese-inspired half octagonal handle is faceted at the top and rounded at the base. This shape is among the most comfortable of traditional Japanese handle styles. The handle combines lacewood with a bog oak ferrule for a dramatic appearance. This is a knife you won't want to put down! Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
To protect the knife while not in use, a matching lacewood saya made by Huber is included.
Excellent work throughout!
