Gidgee Integral Damascus Chef 203mm

It's our pleasure to introduce Mastersmith Shawn McIntyre with this inaugural piece, a stunning 203mm fully forged integral chef knife in housemade 100-layer damascus. Building sole-authorship cutting tools at his shop in Melbourne, Australia, Shawn approaches his work with the eye of an artist and the resolve of an uncompromising artisan, transforming classic styles, like this European inspired, deep-bellied chef, into stand-out custom built wares comprised of only the finest materials. In this case 1080 & 15N20 carbon steels make up the Ladder Pattern damascus blade which is superbly thin behind the edge yet stout and stiff at the spine making for a hard-use and versatile everyday cooking tool. The stabilized premium Ringed Gidgee wood handle is sourced from the outback in Queensland, and a simple stainless steel spacer adds the final touch.
