Blackwood Kasumi San Mai Chef 260mm

Created by Joe Schrum of Halcyon Forge and given its silky kasumi finish by Kasumi Kev, this large chef is easy to pick up and difficult to put down. The 260mm / 10.24" san mai blade contains a core of clean 1.2519% carbon steel with wrought iron cladding that maintains a beautiful forged-finish on the flats. Thin and razor sharp at the edge yet stiff and strong at the spine makes this a versatile daily-use knife in any kitchen. Gorgeous Tasmanian Blackwood, shaped for uncompromising comfort and function for the final touch.
