Burnt Oak Petty Chef 160mm

As you expect from bladesmith Bryan Raquin, clean and classic, this petty chef knife features a 160mm / 6.3" san mai blade with 145sc ('super clean') core and XC10 mild steel cladding. Thin and razor sharp at the edge, the primary bevels reveal a silky kasumi finish below forge-finished flats. Light and quick in the hand, the blade's spine is rounded and tapers to a needle-like tip. Able to rock nicely on the board and with a heel height just tall enough for good knuckle clearance, this will make a very handy and versatile blade in any kitchen. The handle, in Bryan's well-known style, is shaped from locally sourced oak with a charred finish.

The Story

Bryan Raquin's focus on the grain structure of his house-made san mai steels, water quenching for optimal edge performance, and edge geometry for daily use, results in stunning custom chef knives that are kitchen workhorses above all else. Crafted at his studio in France's Auvergne region, Bryan relies on tried-and-true forms inspired by classic Japanese gyutos that include short bevels, clean shinogis, kaumi finishes, and hard, sharp, whetstone-sharpened edges.
