This chef’s knife began as a piece of 1095 bar stock, which I hand-forged to shape and refined through grinding. The steel was clayed and differentially heat-treated to create a Hamon running the length of the blade. It was hand-sanded and etched; which brought out the Hamon and alloy banding present in this particular piece of steel.

The handle was constructed of stabilized Walnut and spalted Maple. It was then attached to the blade and shaped into an extremely ergonomic handle that is particularly comfortable in the pinch grip. The handle then received a hand-rubbed Tung oil finish.

The blade was then sharpened to a razors edge. The handle and blade were hand-rubbed with a mixture of purified mineral oil and beeswax. Every step of this process was completed in my workshop creating a one of a kind, hand-forged knife.
