Description: Boggy knives are a traditional Japanese knife shape designed for heavy duty tasks that would be likely to damage a thinner knife. The smaller size makes it extremely convenient for chopping, while the thick geometry allows the knife to cut through small chicken and fish bones with ease.
Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle began this knife by forging a worn out farrier's rasp. In the early American frontier, it was common to re-forge a rasp once it had worn out. Jim has contiued this tradition. Arbuckle hand forged the blade closely to shape, leaving the tooth pattern to enhance the visual effect and assist with food release. After forging, the high carbon steel blade was double tempered to Hrc 58, ensuring strength and durability.
The traditional Japanese inspired handle is octagonal. It combines holly (Ilex opaca) with a gaboon ebony(Diospyros crassiflora) spacer. The traditional handle provides a sure, comfortable grip.
This is a perfect utility knife for the chef that enjoys using heavier, sturdier knives.
