Gold Line Damascus Chef 245mm

Balanced and sharp, in the hand and to the eyes, shaped from hand-forged, ladder-pattern carbon damascus steel, with 24k gold, and sculpted curly maple, this William Porto chef knife is not just dressed to impress; it's built for daily cooking at every step. The 245mm / 9.6" blade is thin, sharp, and hard at the edge, slightly flexible laterally, convex through the bevels, and ready to tackle nearly every cut in the kitchen. The long Western profile provides a welcomed flat stretch out from the 59mm tall heel for efficient chopping before sweeping upwards through a gentle curve that ends at a pointed tip for slicing and detail work. With heirloom fit, the simply shaped, gold-infused integral damascus bolsters is paired with a beautiful piece of curly maple to complete a handle that is as comfortable in the hand as it is handsome. Finally, a custom lizard leather sheath, also made by William at his shop in Brazil, is included for transport and protection.
