Turquoise Suminagashi Chef 218mm

At 60mm tall with 218mm / 8.6" of thin, sharp edge in VG10 steel below suminagashi cladding, this one-of-a-kind chef knife from maker Fingal Ferguson has everything it takes to be your go-to cutting tool for all manner of daily kitchen work. Tapering to a slim yet tough tip, the nicely balanced blade offers only a miniscule touch of lateral flexibility to give it a sturdy, workhorse feel with tall, subtlety convex bevels to tackle every cut with ease. A rounded spine and choil provide comfort in the pinch grip with which control over the gently curved edge and low, pointed tip is effortless. An octagonal form with a striking combination of materials in Fingal's trademark handle design provides comfort for every chef, with black G10, carbon fiber, polished steel, his trademark, oversized mosaic pin, and a gorgeous ring of turquoise reconstituted stone completing the build.

The Story

Fingal traces his appreciation for knives to his Uncle Harry who gifted him a collection of edged tools from around the world when Fingal was a boy, a collection for which a lack of care in his younger years necessitated the ability to bring them back to life as he grew. Eventually making his own from start to finish, as a butcher on the family farm Fingal’s early knives were quickly put to the test, and his abilities as a maker grew. He began to work with and learn from other makers around Ireland and the UK, refining his skills and building his repertoire. His studio grew at the same time, with new doors on the shop to keep his mother's chickens out Fingal was able to add larger and more powerful tools that help him bring to life the ideas in his head. Today, Fingal's work is sought after by chefs and cooks around the world who appreciate his approach to functional tools, unique style, wide-ranging mix of materials, and his warm, welcoming, and enthusiastic personality.
