Scalloped Chef 220mm

It's our honor to make available this rare bird from our newest maker, Fingal Ferguson of Ireland, crafted from stainless and nickel damascus-clad SG2 san mai steel with scalloped recesses to assist with performance and food release. The 220mm / 8.7" blade stands 55mm tall at the heel and features a hard, sharp, thin edge, low, pointed tip for detail work, and a profile with just enough curvature to rock nicely on the board while also excelling at push-pull cuts. A rounded blade spine and choil provide comfort in the pinch grip and a balance point just behind the front of the handle give the 7.3oz / 208g tool a quick and nimble feel in the hand. In his recognizable and unique form, the handle is shaped from black G10 and carbon fiber, with a striking piece of 40,000 year old mammoth fossil, and Fingals' trademark mosaic pin in the back.

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.
