Salem Straub Damasteel Chef 220mm

A rare chef knife build by Washington maker Salem Straub, this 220mm / 8.7" blade was forged by hand from Damasteel stainless damascus steel and given a subtle fuller that fades out as it approaches the tip. Pre-owned in new condition, this razor-sharp, balanced, and beautiful tool is designed to use every day, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, its thin, hard edge beneath convex bevels perfectly suited to everything from precision slices, chopping on the board, and detail work with the fine, pointed tip. Behind an integral forged bolster that accentuates the striking damascus pattern and transitions gently from blade to tall and thin octagonal form, is a colorful and comfortable piece of purple-dyed maple wood shaped for control and command in the kitchen.
