Damasteel & Bog Oak Chef 250mm

As expected from Tobbe Lundström of Åre, Sweden, this stunning chef knife is built to work hard all day while boasting an aesthetic that would not look out of place behind glass in a museum. The stainless Damasteel blade steel is produced in the mill established in 1676 in Söderfors, Sweden, and is considered a high performance steel known for strength and durability, made using a patented powder steel process to create the damascus pattern. Thin and sharp, with a spine of just 2.4mm, Tobbe's chef knives feature a classic western-style profile including an edge that chops with an effortless rocking motion and slices with ease. The handle, with mosaic and brass pins, is carved from bog oak, salvaged from the Peter Bird, a timber-carrying ship built in 1836 which sank in 1875 in the Baltic Sea. The equally beautiful saya is made from reclaimed barn siding, with a reindeer antler pin.
