Koa Feather Chef 192mm
Designed, built, and finished for rewarding and inspiring kitchen work every day comes a chef knife by Peter Swarz-Burt in housemade carbon damascus steel with a hair-popping 192mm / 7.6" edge. Using a canister-damascus method to create the feather pattern, a new and unique approach compared with most feathers today, Peter attains a fabulous look and high-performance finished product with significantly less material waste. Tall, convex bevels are beautifully refined and slim to a thin, hard edge, combined with a steady, full-distal taper along the spine to a fine tip, resulting in a very functional and versatile blade that is tall enough for big chopping jobs and compact enough for tight workspaces. For comfort and control Peter has sculpted koa wood, Elforyn 'Super Tusk," and classic black micarta into a slightly tapered and wonderfully finished shield-profile wa style handle, complete with black micarta retention pin cover flush at the rear.
