Gidgee Damascus Chef 170mm

Hand-forged from housemade random pattern damascus by Shawn McIntyre in Australia, this 170mm / 7" chef sports an upswept rocker-style blade that tapers to a fine, extremely sharp tip. The versatile size and geometry make this an outstanding knife for tasks small and large, balancing just behind the choil to give it a fast and light feel in the hand. Stabilized, flame-grain ringed gidgee wood with large steel pins is combined with black micarta spacers and dovetailed stainless steel bolsters for a classic, classy look and wonderful feel.
