Random pattern chef


This full-size chef’s knife was forged from 100-layer random pattern Damascus steel made by myself, the knife has a slight convex geometry to aid food release and was sharpened on Waterstones to a hair splitting edge.

The ferrule was soldered from 6 different pieces of brass and is fitted over a tenon carved in the handle, this ensures maximum strength and good balance.

The blade balances 40mm from the ferrule to aid in chopping and dicing.

The handle has a dramatic but comfortable shape and was made from absolutely gorgeous blue dyed poplar burl, that keeps reminding me of Van Gogh’s paintings.
