Double Ambrosia Maple Chef

Double Ambrosia Maple Chef


This chef knife is hand forged from laminated steel; a mild steel jacket on either side of a 52100 high carbon steel core. The core is highly polished which made it very difficult to photograph. Please be aware, this knife blade looks quite different in different lights and blade steel is reactive (more on this below), meaning its appearance will change as you use it. At just about eight inches, this knife feels substaintial in the hand but thin behind the edge for cutting performance. The handle is handmade from two pieces of Ambrosia Maple with a sliver of nickel silver between them. The Maple is a souvenir of sorts, brought home with me after my time spent training with Master Bladesmiths in the US last spring.


Note: This blade is made with carbon steel which, unlike stainless steel, is 'reactive'; this means the blade will develop a patina and will change the appearance of the blade surface over time and can rust if not properly cared for. Handwash only.


Total length: 340mm
