Big Leaf Maple Chef 240mm

Fast, light, and undeniably good looking, the 1095 carbon steel blade of this 240mm / 9.4" custom chef knife from Marc Weinstock of Prick Blades features a razor-sharp edge and aggressive profile that slims to a needle-like tip, perfect for long slices and detail work on the board. Convex bevel geometry culminates in a thin edge that retains ample strength for a variety of cutting tasks while the rounded, polished spine, 1.9mm across at its widest point, provides a bit of lateral blade flexibility. A beautiful piece of dyed and stabilized big leaf maple forms the faceted handle which includes a spacer of black micarta.
