Carnivorous by design, the "Pit Knife" (as in BBQ pit) is a great grilling, smoking, and Barbecue knife - but is equally at home in the kitchen as an all-purpose chef knife. This knife is a robust chopper and on the heavier side, but still very well-balanced. 

The blade was hand-forged from a forge-welded San Mai billet of 1095 and 15n20 high carbon steels. The blade was then ground to it's final shape, heat-treated, hand-sanded, etched and received a BBQ sauce / coffee inspired patina. A handle was added made of stabilized hickory and mesquite that touts a hand-rubbed tung oil finish. The knife was then sharpened to a razors edge and the handle and blade were hand-polished with a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax. Every step of this process was completed in my workshop, creating a one of a kind, hand-forged knife.
