Brass & Micarta Chef 210mm

Made by Will Griffin in Brooklyn, NY, our first chef knife by this talented bladesmith and artist is a striking and solidly built workhorse for the chef that appreciates the effortless cuts of a weighted, balanced, carbon steel blade. Classic linen micarta is matched with solid brass bolsters and oversized brass pins to form a western style handle that seems to melt in to your hand. At 210mm / 8.26" the housemade damascus blade is created from five alternating layers of 1095 & 15N20 and tapers from a stout 4.6mm at the heel to 1.9mm an inch from the tip. Superb geometry and balance mean this sturdy blade does not sacrifice, a sharp, thin edge and balance point just at the choil offer agility and versatility matched only by the knife's strength.
