Product information

This Chef Knife is hand forged in Berthoud Colorado by Bladesmith Akiva Meola from 1084 high-carbon steel.  One of his favorite designs for a Chef Knife, it makes for an all-around kitchen companion. Each blade is forged, ground, heat treated to a 62 HRC, polished, and sharpened. The handles are sculpted in-house, designed for total comfort and confidence. Here are some of the features that make this knife special:

The knife has a 3/4 hidden tang with a Western handle profile. The curly silver maple is stabilized in blue resin, making the handle more durable, tough, and water and heat resistant. After sculpting, the maple is given a flame faded finish. The bolster is white Corian, meeting up to a mirror finished choil and spine, rounded for comfort. The heel of the blade is just around 70mm wide, giving excellent clearance from the cutting board. The blade also includes a hot-formed navy kydex sheath with polished brass grommets.

NOTE: All processes are done in house and by hand. This means there are slight variations among the blades.

NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
