Parallel Oak Petty 137mm

Emanating from the green-capped oak handle of this petty chef knife by Nick Rossi are parallel lines of house-made carbon damascus steel, tightly bound and running first through a stepped-down integral bolster that bares Nick's stamp, then gracefully through the length of the blade to it's fine, needle-like tip. At 40mm tall with a very thin, hard, razor-sharp edge and full distal taper that thins the spine steadily from back to front, this blade is poised to tackle nearly any cut in the kitchen, from precise slices of fish and other proteins to vegetable chopping in even the tightest quarters. Comfortable and simple, with the aforementioned pop of green for good measure, the Western-style sculpted handle is naturally beautiful and fits the knife perfectly.

The Story

At age 15, Nick Rossi was already working in the cutlery shop where he was first introduced to the world of custom knife making. In 2003 his work was featured in print. By 2006 Nick was teaching bladesmithing at the New England School of Metalwork. Now, and throughout, Nick has crafted function-first chef knives and kitchen cutlery at his Maine studio for working and home cooks alike. Forging his own damascus, sourcing classic, natural handle materials, and designing unique, simple and elegant blades for daily meal prep, Nick has developed a following and reputation on par with the best in the business, and we are honored to represent his work here on Eatingtools.
