Description

This is a broad   8 inch Santokufeather 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. The handle is made from Burl walnut with a hammered sterling silver ferrule with two garnets set into it. The handle is a very special feathered piece of burl walnut and there is a sterling silver buttcap  with an oval garnet setin to a gold setting.

The edge and spine are forged from a subtle 500 layer random pattern damascus around a central core of feather. I am particularly proud of this knife and pattern and as far as i know it is unique to me.

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 santoku knife shape is perfect for chopping vegitables and is a very usefull allrounder in the kitchen.

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.
