Ziricote Raindrop Chef 210mm

A match to Matthew Rubendall's smaller Ziricote Raindrop Petty 170mm, this full-size chef features a 210mm / 8.2" blade of the 52100 carbon steel with forced 'Raindrop' pattern patina for added protection against the elements, and of course, a head-turning aesthetic in the kitchen. Sharp and bold with a full-distal taper that provides the versatility of a stiff, strong edge near the heel for chopping, and a precise, subtly flexible, upswept French-style profile toward the tip, this blade will excel as the go-to knife for nearly all imaginable cutting tasks. An elegantly tapered blade tang extends through the handle of striking ziricote wood, maple, and steel pins, that offers a tapered, long and comfortable faceted grip. Matched exquisitely to the handle, a custom made saya of the same piece of ziricote, above maple, and cedar, with a turned stainless steel two-piece pin, is included.
