Ironwood Integral Chef 221mm

An integral chef by Dan Prendergast build by hand in central England with a beautiful and classic European profile, the forged Bohler K510 carbon steel blade balances a hair in front of the choil with a solid, work-horse feel in the hand. The blade's spine tapers steadily from 3.5mm above the maker's mark to 1.2mm one inch from the tip, helping to provide an almost unnoticeable amount of flexibility toward the tip, making this a versatile, daily use knife in an excellent and handy size at 221mm / 8.7". The ironwood is the perfect match for a simple and elegant chef created by an extremely talented bladesmith.
