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 9 inch damascus blade was hand forged from O2 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The blade is convex ground for additional food release. The top of the knife is forge textured. The spine and choil are rounded for comfort. The blade has a distal taper for excellent balance in hand.
Handle scales are European Chestnut, set on the full tang using black G-10 pins. The scales are perfectly fit to black G-10 bolsters. The coke bottle shaped handle is extremely comfortable and provides a solid grip. This is a knife you won't want to put down!
Excellent work throughout!
