Damascus 8" Chef Knife With Black Pakkawood Handle FC6101
The chef knife is the workhorse of the kitchen. This blade is shaped in the French tradition which has a straighter edge which means more edge strikes the cutting board. The handle is made of black pakkawood with brass pins and a beautiful mosaic in the center. A genuine leather sheath is included.
Our Damascus kitchen knives are handcrafted from extraordinary materials and refined for the highest level of cutting performance and notable for unparalleled sharpness and striking aesthetics. Each knife is a unique work of art, styled and crafted by master bladesmiths from the hand-carved edge to the Damascus-pattern blade.
The Damascus blades for these knives were created by forge welding multiple layers of steels into a Solid block called a billet (4340 &1095 High Carbon Tool Steels). The billet is folded and re-welded several times to produce several layers. Patterns are created by manipulating the steel during the forge welding process. When acid is added to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive layered pattern in the Steel. The combination of layered hard and soft steel creates blade flexibility, toughness and produces invisible serrations on the blade that aid cutting. The hardness of the Damascus steel is 54-56 HRC on the rockwell scale.
