Lilac San Mai Chef 205mm

A hidden-tang, san mai chef knife by Dan Prendergast of England, this 205mm / 8.1" blade features an Aogami Super core with wrought iron cladding. The strong, stiff blade geometry lends a work-horse feel to the knife while a thin edge and distal taper that culminates in a fine, sharp tip makes the decidedly European profile excellent for detail work as well. A lilac wood handle with beautiful grain is shaped in Dan's diamond shape wa-style rendition for comfortable, controlled cuts.

The Story

Dan's extensive background in metalwork, which has included making piano pedal springs, copper hop boilers as well as ironwork conservation and restoration for Kensington Palace and Canterbury Cathedral, gives him the knowledge, perspective and experience to create culinary tools whose simple beauty is derived from a focus placed squarely on function and time honored, traditional techniques. Forging, heat treating, tempering, carving and finishing each piece by hand in his central England workshop, Dan creates each element of each cutting tool himself by hand.
