Thunder Damascus Chef 220mm

The Thunder Damascus Chef Knife by bladesmith Charlie Ellis shatters the status quo and delivers a blade like none before it. Deeply etched carbon steel is forg welded to lightning bolt-like veins of pure nickel, then shaped into a long, slim, elegant cutting tool for the kitchen. Beyond the voluptuously sculpted integral bolster, steel is superbly fitted to black dyed amboyna burl for a handle as exquisite as the blade.

The Story

A long-time blacksmith and bladesmith, Charlie Ellis crafts one-of-a-kind chef knives at his North Carolina workshop. Drawn to making kitchen cutlery originally by the need in his own kitchen for reliable, high-quality blades, the knives Charlie produced quickly advanced beyond objects of his own use, and soon become objects of art and precision for others to enjoy. Function-first designs with integral bolsters, compound bevel geometry, sculpted handles, and unique materials and blade finishes, are noteworthy elements of many of the kitchen tools in our collection handmade by Charlie.
