#196

European style chef knife in Damasteel Vinland. This is a very light knife and a great all round knife. It is an allround knife that can be used for most tasks in the kitchen or as a chefs line knife.

Weight: 129g

Length overall: 300mm

Balance point: Between the X and DENMARK of the logo

Blade

The blade has a flat grind with a wide bevel and is tapered from the bolster to the tip. The flat bevel has been polished after etching and appears more blank than the upper part of the blade.

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

Steel: Damasteel Vinland

This steel is made by a small company in Sweden called Damasteel (www.damasteel.se). It is composed of two different powder metallurgy steels in alternating layers. It has a good corrosion resistance and superior edge sharpness and toughness. It is an excellent steel for knives and beautiful too.

After grinding and finishing the blade it is etched in muriatic acid. The acid only affects one of the steel types and eats away a bit of material form that and also colors it dark grey. Depending on how much the blade is etched, you can feel the small amount of material that has been removed when running your fingers over the blade.


The blade has been heat treated inhouse in a PID controlled furnace at 1100°C and quenched between aluminium plates. This is followed by deep freezing in dry ice and  a tempering cycle in a PID controlled oven to adjust the hardness..

Hardness: 62-63 HRC

Height at heel: 49mm

Cutting edge length: 178mm

Thickness at

  • Spine at bolster: 2.3mm

  • Spine halfway: 1.2mm

  • 1 cm from the tip: 0.7mm

Handle

Material: Layered birch bark that has been treated with Danish Oil. Birch bark has been used for centuries in Scandinavia for knife handles, specially for the Finnish puukko knives.

Bolster: The bolster and butt is made of Ebonite.

The knife is all handmade in my workshop in Copenhagen. I make two to three knives a week, each one is custom fitted. While they follow the same recipe they are all slightly different.
