Western Chef

300.00 350.00

This is my western style chef. It’s designed to have the tip in the midpoint of the knife. This gives you a high rock and a solid base for chopping. Its a great design for anyone to use.

1095 HC Steel

  • A high end carbon steel with a simple chemistry. Known to be very tough and easy to sharpen. It can also take a keener edge then a lot of stainless steels.

Tasmanian Blackwood (K&G stabilized)

  • Tasmanian Blackwood is a Australian wood that is known for its holographic nature similar to Koa.

  • K&G have over 20 years in stabilizing and are known to be the best.

  • The stabilizing process almost turns wood into a plastic. This makes the wood very resistant to warping and water damage.

Differential Hardening (Hamon)

  • A hamon is the wavy line you see on the blade. Its not just for looks, it serves a function. Traditionally hamons are found on Japanese swords. The hamon is created during the heat treating process. The spine is cooled at a much slower rate then the edge. This creates a differential hardening where the spine is soft and the edge is hard. The reason for this technique is to stop snapping of the blade, while also giving you the ability to straighten the blade if it has become bent in any way.

.07” Thick at the spine

  • A thinner spine means that you don’t have to push material out of the way. Making it easier to glide through what you are cutting.

8" Blade

13" Overall
