Mesua Ferre Petty Chef 160mm

Dressed in rare mesua ferre from Thailand, this 160mm / 6.3” petty chef by master metalsmith Tai Goo is forged from 1095 carbon steel with a beautifully balanced upswept blade profile. A differential heat treatment and etched blade surface with hand sanded finish reveals a faint quench line, the thin, light edge culminating in a tip perfect for precise detail work. Alternating brass handle pins complete the package in this piece from an extremely talented and experience blacksmith who produces few custom knives for the kitchen.
