French Chef's Knife Style 6123 - Presentation Grade


This is an example of what I call a Presentation Grade knife. The 8" ATS-34 blade is flat ground, mirror polished, and Rockwells at 60. This light weight (7.4 ounce) knife has a polished aluminum ferrule followed by red and black fiber spacers in front of an incredible piece of stabilized maple burl. The back of the blade has been smoothly rounded so it won't chafe your hand if you hold the knife by the blade while dicing.

This 8" tool steel blade is made from my own Ladder Pattern damascus. The guard is wrought iron from an old Conestoga wagon wheel and sits in front of a gorgeous stabilized Chechen Burl handle.

When elegance is second only to function this knife is a fine choice!






French Chef's Knife Style 6114 - Dress Grade


The 8" 440C blade is flat ground, and Rockwells at 59. The black walnut handle slabs sit on top of bright red fiber spacers. The handle is pinned with mosaic pins and the back of the blade has been smoothed and rounded .

The man who ordered this knife got the black walnut from a plaque left to him by his father. Having this knife made from it was his way of keeping those memories close.




Custom Chef's Knife - Dress Grade


This knife was designed by the chef that ordered it. The handle is as fancy as the others shown on this page but it has the more serviceable satin finished blade intended for hard use - hence the Dress Grade designation.

The blade is 1/8th" thick, 8" long zone tempered O1 tool steel - an excellent choice for professional use. The edge Rockwell's at 58.5 and the back at 48. The handle is stabilized Black Ash Burl with red fiber liners. The balance is at the front of the handle and the weight is 9.1 ozs which is in line with the customer's specifications.




French Chef's Knife - Style 6133


The blade is 1/8th" thick, 9" long 440C stainless with a satin finish. The handle is stabilized Black Ash Burl with black fiber liners and a Yellow Spiny Coral spacer. This Dress Grade knife weighs 9.3 ozs so you can use it all day without wearing out your arm and wrist.
