Stainless Damascus Chef 225mm

With a niche carved for himself at the forefront of house made, high-performance stainless damascus formulation, William Brigham of The Artificery crafts chef's knives one by one at this California studio, always aiming to improve upon what has come before. Finely tuning each element of a build, testing, and re-testing, his knives, including this 225mm / 8.86" chef, are designed for comfort and efficiency on the cutting board, plain and simple. Compound 's-grind' bevel geometry and a very thin edge mean fast, precise and effortless cuts and excellent food release. A long, steady distal taper provides strength and stability toward the heel, and a fine, paper-thin tip and a touch of lateral flexibility at the opposite end. An integral bolster transitions through spacers of stainless steel and G10 and in to the sculpted, textured ironwood burl handle with a shape that is as welcoming in the hand is it is easy on the eyes.

The Story

William Brigham, bladesmith behind The Artificery, specializes in house-made stainless damascus chef knives crafted to the highest standards of quality and beauty. A pioneer of handcrafted, high-performance stainless damascus steel, the focus of William's craft lies as much in the realms of innovation, discovery, and metallurgical experimentation, as in the crafting of the ultimate tools themselves. Producing relatively few blades each year, every knife out of The Artificery's California workshop exudes refinement, character, and a pensiveness that leaves no piece of the puzzle missing. The result is an extraordinary cooking tool.
