Hey Lumberjocks,
This 5” chef’s knife is high carbon steel, not stainless steel like most knives. It will sharpen easier and stay sharp longer, just takes some extra care. The high carbon steel is from France and the knife was made by Hoch Tools from Ft Bragg Ca. This is a full tang knife with beautiful Koa scales. I also added three brass pins. The only treatment- BLO and a little wax. Lupe’s kitchen knife. The last picture is my knife holder that is essentially a block of Walnut with magnets embedded in the sides of the block. It’s been a fixture in my kitchen for years.
Thanks for checking out the 5 inch Chef’s knife.

Awesome knife Greg. I love the Koa scales you picked out and finished. Great call with the brass pins too, they add a lot of class.

I do agree-high carbon steel is a better knife than stainless any [email protected]!

Beautiful work on the scales and riovets too.
