#189

European style chef knife in high carbon steel. This is a very light and a great all round knife. One of my favorites.
Not being stainless it is not for everyone as it requires more care in order to develop a nice patina, rather than to rust. If well maintained it is a great knife, with a steel that is easy to sharpen.

Weight: 157g

Length overall: 338mm

Balance point: Under the DENMARK of the logo.

Blade

The blade has a convex grind and is tapered from the bolster to the tip.

The spine and choil has been rounded to make the knife comfortable to use with a pinch grip.

Steel: 1095 high carbon steel

1095 has been a very popular high-carbon steel for knives for many years. It holds a great edge and is very easy to sharpen, but rusts easily if not cared for.

Heat treatment: The blade has been differentially heat treated inhouse in a PID controlled furnace at 815°C and quenched in fast specialty quenching oil. Finally it is tempered in a PID controlled oven to the final hardness.

The differential hardening of the blade is produced by covering part of the blade in clay during heat treat and results in a soft spine but a hard edge. What is called a hamon in Japanese sword making.

Hardness: 61-62 HRC

Height at heel: 48mm

Cutting edge length: 207mm

Thickness at

  • Spine at bolster: 2.5mm

  • Spine halfway: 1.9mm

  • 1 cm from the tip: 0.6mm

Handle

Material: Arizona Ironwood.
This is one of the hardest woods in the world. It is very durable and one of the most valued woods for knife handles.
Bolster and spacers: Ebonite bolster, G10 and brass spacers and ⅛” brass handle pin.

Treatment: The handle is sealed with Danish Oil.
