Damascus Kitchen Knife 549 (9 ¼”)

91:4%22 kitchen knife 549This 9 1/4 inch kitchen knife is made from a 7 layer Patternweld that has been very tightly twisted. This is my own variation of the twisted patterns that the Saxon Swordsmiths used in their legendary blades.

During the forging the blade is drawn out into a gradual taper, making a blade that is thin near the tip and retains some of its thickness where it meets the handle, this leads to a much better balanced blade. The blade has a low tip and very gentle edge curve (reminesent of the Japanese Santoku ).

The handle is walnut, bone and buffalo horn.

Materials : 15 N 20 Carbon Steel and 1080 Carbon Steel, Walnut ,bone andBuffalo Horn.

Big blade length is  9.5 inches  long,  just under 2 inches wide and 3 mm thick at the handle.

The knife weighs 206 grams.

Price £480 (plus postage)

I offer a guarantee against faulty manufacture for the lifetime of the knives. This does not cover abusive use of the knives or wear and tear. The handle materials on these knives are natural and as such, must be looked after. These knives will not respond well to being left soaking in a sink or (and it pains me to even think of it) put in a dishwasher. I would consider both of these actions as knife abuse.  Use them, clean them, dry them and they will remain beautiful for years to come.
