Description: Martin Huber hails from Austria and is considered one of the greatest chef knife makers from that region. His father, mother, and grandfather all had blacksmithing and metalworking experience which led 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 8 inch blade is hand forged from a san mai combining a 1.2519 carbon tool steel cutting edge with stainless steel cladding. 1.2519 is an oil hardening carbon steel that achieves a working hardness of 64 Hrc (extremely hard!) and maintains high wear resistance. This makes it an excellent steel for kitchen knives and outdoor knives. A nickel layer between the cladding and core helps prevent carbon migration. The forge finish along the top of the blade will help with food release. Both the spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort. This knife has beautifully thin geometry for effortless high performance cutting.
Handle scales are spalted curly mango secured to the full tang using G-10 pins. The coke bottle shaped handle is extremely comfortable and provides a solid grip. The handle is comfortable in both a pinch grip and when held further back on the handle. This is a knife you won't want to put down!
Excellent work throughout!
