Birch & Turquoise Damascus Chef 240mm

The handcrafted 240mm / 9.45" blade of this stunning chef knife by Isaiah Schroeder stands 63mm tall at the heel and features a superb S-grind, providing a beautifully balanced, thin and lightweight blade with excellent food release. The damascus is forged from W2 and 15N20 carbon steel with the blade’s distal taper thinning steadily from 2.5mm above the heel to just 0.9mm an inch from the tip, resulting in a perfectly heat-treated edge with just enough flexibly to create a very versatile tool. The spalted birch, stabilized in-house by Isaiah is paired with copper and turquoise to create the one-of-a-kind handle. A poplar wood saya is included.
