Burnt Oak Utility 218mm

Long enough to perform the work of a cook's go-to chef knife, short at the heel and slim enough to perform carving and slicing work, and belt-finished with enough edge strength for the toughest cuts, this is an outstanding and versatile utility blade from Bryan Raquin. Quick and nimble in the hand, a 218mm / 8.6" blade is hand-forged from 125sc carbon steel with XC10 mild steel cladding, tapering only slightly along the spine and culminating at a pointed, aggressive, yet sturdy tip. A handle of locally-sourced burnt oak provides wonderful texture, comfort, and control.
