Ringed Gidgee Mosaic Chef 238mm

Dressed in a beautiful and dark piece of exhibition-grade Australian Ringed Gidgee, sculpted to a slim, simple, exceedingly comfortable form to provide comfort and control over the 238mm / 9.4" blade, this one-of-a-kind chef knife by Henning Wilkinson is ready to take on the kitchen, and then some. Forged by hand from his basketweave pattern carbon damascus steel, the blade has received subtle, compound 'S-grind' bevel geometry for added cutting performance. Light and nimble in the hand, balanced at the front of the kaleidoscope pattern damascus bolster, the blade is slim while maintaining enough material behind the edge to be the kitchen's workhorse, flexing laterally as it tapers steadily to a thin, pointed tip for detail work. With a blade choil that turns back slightly to place the edge's heel beneath the handle bolster, a silky, lustrous blade finish, and 18 karat gold maker's mark inlaid below the blade's spine, Henning has delivered a striking knife that is built to cook with daily.

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.
