Description: Trevor Morgan Jr. of Apple Valley Forge resides in Apple Valley, California. He forges bowie knives, hunting knives, and high performance chef knives. Taking classes with renowned Mastersmith David Lisch has taken Trevor's work to an entirely different level of design, and fit and finish. We were extremely pleased to meet Trevor at Blade Show 2023 and be able to offer his exceptional work at our gallery.
A chef's knife is the general purpose knife in the kitchen. From slicing tomatoes to chopping onions, this knife will get the task done perfectly. This 8" chef's knife is long enough to prepare most anything, yet still comfortable and easy to maneuver. It is sure to be a kitchen favorite.
Trevor began forging this integral chef's knife from 52100 carbon steel. Many knifemakers as well as knife users feel that 52100 is among the best (if not the best) steel used in the modern knife industry. It provides an exceptionally keen, long lasting edge. Trevor's name is on the right side of the blade and his Apple Valley Forge mark is on the left side. This knife is extremely nimble and light for its size and build construction.
The bolster is fully integral to the blade. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith. The bolster is carved to encourage a comfortable pinch grip.
The handle is stabilized presentation grade redwood burl. It is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip - swelling at the palm, moving into a slimmer waist, and swelling again at the end of the handle. This knife will remain comfortable even after hours of use. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
