SOLD-Special Edition Forged Geometry Integral Petty/Suji Hibred - 212mm
Very Special knife, forged entirely to shape and geometry in the line of my forged geometry work. This is clad in pure nickel , iron and thin shim steel damascus with a core of sc125 pure carbon steel with superb glassy hard heat treatment , feels buttery smooth through food and on the stones.
This knife features a Hibred Wa handle, recessed and beveled at the bolster, capped with sculpted end bark piece of elk horn. This knife not only gives you the finest balance of performance and control, but gives a unique celebration of textures. Unlike most high end damascus the bevels are maintainable over time, and have been stone finished then etched, so its up to you if you want to maintain on the stones and re-etch or simply use you fave creamy Jnat and you will have lovely subtle cloudy contrast to the layers.
