This is a broad 11” feather pattern kitchen knife. The central feather pattern is made by forcing a blunt cutting tool through a patterned bar to create distortion in the layers. I wanted this pattern to actually look like a feather and I believe that this pattern is currently unique to me…..
The edge and spine are forged from a 300 layer random pattern Damascus this has beef fish mouth forged around the feather. 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. I have left a little thickness in this blade to add some more weight for chopping. The handle is made from a lovely piece of burl walnut that also has feather patterning in it and there is a sterling silver ferrule and but cap. The tang passes all the way through the handle and is peened over (riveted over).
The knife has a point of balance 2.5 inches into the blade and feels light and elegant for its size.
I am particularly proud of this knife and pattern!

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.
