Midnight Hexplosion Chef 205mm

Taller than its cousin dubbed the Towering Explosion Chef, this incredible knife from artist, sculptor, and bladesmith Joshua Prince features the same Hexplosion pattern mosiac damascus steel made in-house by Josh, this time standing 95mm off the cutting board, with a dak, moody finish. Weighted in the hand and nicely balanced just in front of the handle's bolster, this impressive tool's 205mm / 8.1" blade features tall, slightly convex bevels that culminate at a hard, sharp edge, thin enough for every slice yet robust enough for the toughest cuts. Add to that a very functional, strong, and pointed tip that sits low at the end of a fully tapered blade spine, an edge profile that rocks nicely on the board, and a very comfortable handle sculpted from walnut burl that hugs the hand in all the right places, and you have a beautifully versatile, head-turning chef's knife hand-crafted by this talented artisan at his Rhode Island studio.

The Story

Gravitating toward sculpture from an early age, wood, stone, clay, and concrete have all played the roll of canvas in Joshua Prince's artistic pursuits, with blacksmithing and bladesmithing stealing his heart and leading him to found Princeworks Forge. The opportunities to incorporate a wide variety of materials, colors, and texture in to objects that can be held in the hand, contemplated, and put to task in the kitchen, is what Joshua loves about crafting knives. And it shows, in his other-worldly designs, mesmerizing damascus patterns, and larger-than-life culinary objects. We're honored to represent Joshua's work here at Eatingtools.
