Hornbeam and Nickel Silver Chef

Hornbeam and Nickel Silver Chef


This chef knife is hand forged from laminated steel; a mild steel jacket on either side of  a 52100 high carbon steel core. At just about eight inches, it feels substaintial in the hand but thin behind the edge for cutting performance. The handle is handmade with North London Hornbeam and a sliver of nickel silver.


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.


Total length: 335mm

Blade length: 205mm 

Depth at heel: 55mm 

Blades thickest point: 3mm
