Sterling Karelian Chef 205mm
Just in from Boston's Eliane LeBlanc, hand-forged from homemade san mai steel crafted with wrought iron cladding and a 1084 carbon steel core, is this exquisite chef knife designed as your go-to tool for daily meal prep. The nicely rounded blade spine tapers from 3.1mm wide above the 51mm-tall heel steadily forward to a very fine tip with just a touch of flexibility. Eliane's geometry is superb, the medium-height convex bevels slimming to a very thin profile just above a hard, razor-sharp cutting edge. Behind the founded choil and forge-finished blade flats and tang is a comfortably sculpted handle of dreamy karelian birch with a fine silver spacer.
