Introducing our Chef's Knife, an exquisite culinary tool rooted in tradition, yet enhanced with the power of modern technology. As a mainstay in western cuisine, this knife once primarily served to slice and disjoint large cuts of beef. Today, it has evolved into a versatile instrument for diverse food preparation tasks, making it an indispensable item in any cook's arsenal.
Measuring an overall length of 11.5 inches, this Chef's Knife possesses an artfully balanced combination of blade and handle lengths at 7 inches and 4.5 inches, respectively. The blade, slightly longer than the traditional design, allows for greater dexterity and precision, while the sturdy handle ensures comfort and control in every cut.
The blade's heart lies in its construction: high-quality Pattern welded Damascus Steel. Created with 11 pieces of steel folded five times, the blade proudly displays 352 layers of finely crafted steel. This complex composition combines six pieces of Carbon Steel #43 and #40 and five pieces of High Carbon Steel 1095, yielding a robust and resilient blade. The Rockwell hardness rating of 55-56 HRC speaks to its perfect balance between hardness and durability.
Our Damascus steel isn't just tough; it's smart. By leveraging 1095 steel, we incorporate the highest content carbon steel used in swords, resulting in a blade that holds a sharp edge and can withstand intense use.
As for the handle, it's crafted from Micarta, a material renowned for its durability and excellent grip, even when wet. The dark hue of the handle beautifully complements the intricacies of the Damascus steel blade, marrying function with style.
Finally, this chef's knife comes with a protective leather sheath for safe storage.
