Ambrosia Maple and Silver Nickel Chef

Ambrosia Maple and Silver Nickel Chef


This chef knife is hand forged from laminated steel; a mild steel jacket on either side of  a satin finished 52100 high carbon steel core. The blade is medium weight, feeling substaintial in the hand but thin behind the edge for cutting performance. The handle is handmade from a gorgeous piece of rippled Ambrosia Maple, a type of spalted wood caused by fungi travelling with ambrosia beetles - something we don't get around here. The handle also has a nickel silver cap and pin. This Ambrosia Maple is a souvenir of sorts, brought home with me after my time spent training with Master Bladesmiths in the US last spring.


This blade is made with high carbon steel which, unlike stainless steel, is 'reactive'; this means the blade will develop a patina, changing the appearance of the blade surface as you use it (see T&C's). I prefer to work with high carbon steels over stainless steels due to their incredible edge retention and ease of sharpening at home. This blade can rust if not properly cared for. Handwash only.
