Description: Handmade by Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle, this small chef's knife is a perfect choice for chopping in the kitchen. From mincing garlic and shallots to chopping fruits and vegetables, this 4-1/4 inch chefs knife is a great choice for the cook who prefers a smaller knife, but wants finger clearance over a cutting board to allow for a comfortable rocking chop!
The 4-1/4 inch blade is formed from high performing ATS-34 stainless steel. It is hardened and double tempered to 58-59 Hrc. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality. The blade is convex ground to minimize food sticking to the blade. This technique is much more effective than a granton edge! Modified bamboo filework along the spine adds tremendous visual impact.
The contoured grips are formed from presentation grade box elder burl. By stabilizing the wood, Jim ensures that they will hold up well to the demanding environment of either a home or commercial kitchen. A deep choil provides a comfortable, secure place to rest the 1st finger. The handle allows for several different grips and makes the knife easy to maneuver even with slippery hands. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
