Kaleidoscope Mosaic Chef 220mm

Forged by hand in South Africa, bladesmith Henning Wilkinson marries art and function in a stunning, one-of-a-kind chef knife. Henning's house-made Kaleidoscope pattern mosaic carbon damascus steel forms the 220mm / 8.6" blade with strong, workhorse, S-grind geometry, positioning the knife as a daily-user for demanding tasks large and small, and even for carving and serving at the dining table with its head-turning looks. With integral bolster construction that sees the damascus pattern extended into the handle, Henning enhances the transition from steel to Ironwood with a sculpted joint, a detail that sets the design apart. With a 9-carot gold maker's mark inlaid into the blade, every decision made during the knife's build adds to the uniqueness of this knife that any kitchen will be lucky to house.

The Story

Having spent his first years creating the tools and equipment he would need to design and forge his own damascus steel patterns, Henning Wilkinson learned each skill and discipline within knifemaking methodically and purposefully, and he now uses this knowledge and experience to craft sole-authorship art knives and world-class culinary tools at his shop in Sundra, South Africa. Whether the 9-carot gold maker's mark inlaid into the blade, a decorative bolster-to-handle transition, or the blade's finely tuned geometry, every detail is the result of a thoughtful and calculated approach with which Henning aims to outdo the last piece with each new build. Specializing in house-made damascus steels and always pushing himself to the limits of his abilities, Henning's knives are part art, part tool, and one hundred percent uniquely his.
