Burlap Honyaki Chef 234mm

The handcrafted prototype of a new full-tang chef knife design from New York bladesmith Greg Cimms, this gorgeous build features a high-polished blade of W2 carbon steel with differentially heat-treated honyaki finish. With a workhorse feel in the hand, the blade tapers forward to a very fine tip, and slices with a thin, razor-sharp edge that sits below pronounced convex bevels, providing the strength and versatility for demanding and tough work as well as precise and delicate cuts. For comfort and control, a handle sculpted from black burlap micarta atop liners of 'toxic green' G10 is secured with a pair of stainless pins and a single, unique mosaic pin at the center.
