Redwood Micarta Chef 225mm

From the heavily tapered tang sandwiched between pieces of beautiful redwood, to the rounded, polished blade spine that steadily slims to the paper-thin tip, to the comfort of the Western-style handle in the hand, Dan Bidinger checks all the boxes with this one-of-a-kind handmade chef knife. The steel choice for this piece is high-performance AEB-L stainless, the blade extending out 225mm / 8.9", and standing 59mm at the heel, delivering full convex bevels, a thin, razor-sharp edge, and finished with a silky, hand-sanded satin sheen. From the polished choil for comfort in the pinch grip to the sculpting of the redwood and black micarta handle with its bronze pins, Dan's fit and finish throughout is top notch. A knife to become the daily workhorse in any kitchen for jobs big and small.

An emphasis on precision bevel geometry and compound grinds has gained Dan a following by chefs who prefer a Western-style blade with aggressive tips, long, thin edges, and laser-like cutting styles.
