Red Gum Feather Chef 179mm

Dressed in ancient red gum timber carbon dated to 7,500 years old, this visually striking, thin, light, and fast chef knife by Jackson Rumble is built to take on nearly every cutting need throughout the kitchen. A full and steady distal taper along the blade's rounded spine from tang forward ends with a slim, needle-like tip for fine slices and detail work, preceded by a razor's edge that sits below superbly shaped convex bevels which bare the jaw-dropping etched feather damascus pattern of Jackson's making. At 179mm / 7" with a 51mm tall heel and pointed, triangular tip, a mid-size sweet spot in overall size and form is achieved, large enough for big cuts, and compact enough to prep full meals in tight quarters. The red gum is sculpted in a comfortable, octagonal shape, each edge softened and contoured, and finally, accented with a bronze spacer.

The Story

Having already taught knifemaking at the Tharwa Valley Forge, Australian bladesmith Jackson Rumble earned his Journeyman Smith rating from the American Bladesmith Society, and it shows. Jackson creates beautiful, handcrafted tools for the kitchen that walk the line between art and tool. Forging unique damascus steel patterns is at the heart of his creative pursuits, while edge and cutting performance drive every decision throughout the process. Jackson carefully develops and tests new formulas, putting each through a series of tests to affirm that it adheres his standards. Always aiming for clean lines and crisp finishes, Jackson’s work is superb, and just what we look for at Eatingtools.
