Description: Mastersmith Harvey Dean is well known for his art knives. Over the last several years, he has begun to make chef's knives as well and the results are clearly exceptional! His heat treatment technique, combined with his choice of steel, results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This is a knife that you won't want to put down.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. A finger groove allows for a particularly comfortable pinch grip.
The blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai (three layers). Layers of stainless steel surround a V-Toku carbon steel core. A thin layer of nickel between the two adds exceptional contrast. The result is the exceptional edge holding of carbon steel with significantly easier care. V-Toku2, the steel which forms the cutting edge, is a 'super-steel' created by Takefu, in Japan. Very high in carbon content (approx. 1-1.1%) this steel holds and takes an amazing edge.
The handle is formed from high Arctic muskox horn. Muskox horn is one of the most rare and majestic handle materials used in the knife world. The highly polished horn has a unique grain structure that immediately grabs the eye. It is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the end of the handle. The handle features a raised heirloom fit and 14k gold, hand domed pins.
A damascus bolster brings focus to the middle of the knife. The high contrast Twisted Ws pattern damascus combines 15N20 and 1084. A border and ornamental scroll are inlaid in 24k gold.
The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
