Maple Burl Damasteel Chef 235mm

An exquisite, one-of-a-kind 235mm / 9.25” chef knife by bladesmith Isaiah Schroeder of Madison, Wisconsin. In Bjokman’s Twist Damasteel stainless damascus, the 50mm tall blade tapers from 3.4mm above the choil to barely 1mm shy of the tip. Beautifully weighted and balanced just at the maker's mark, about an inch in front of the handle, with a sharp, thin edge and convex geometry leaning toward that of a workhorse, this knife is made for daily prep work of all variety. The sculpted, faceted and gently curved and tapered handle is shaped from dyed, stabilized maple burl with accents of brass and a beautiful turquoise spacer. A handmade wood saya is included.
