Canvas Micarta Chef 255mm

A workhorse from Don Ngyuen, the 255mm 52100 carbon steel blade with a convex bevel boasts an outstanding distal taper that thins from 4.1mm at the heel to 1.4mm an inch from the tip.  The resulting geometry combined with the modest 46.5mm height makes this a long, thin slicer of a chef knife with an aggressive and thin tip for detail work. The hand-sanded satin finish of the blade flows into a beautiful, simple and comfortable handle in Don's unique and recognizable style made from canvas micarta with a black linen micarta liner.

The Story

Building beautifully designed, expertly engineered chef knives at his one-man shop in the US state of Arizona, Don Nguyen's culinary tools lend themselves to daily use in even the most demanding of kitchens and applications. Often beginning with thicker-than-average raw blade steel billets, his knives tend to be work-horse tools, stiff, balanced and shaped to handle hours of cuts that don't necessarily demand a delicate touch. Yet the thin edges and aggressive tips Don shapes with precision are as suited to exacting slices as to heavy chopping.
