KITCHEN KNIVES

Some examples of previously sold knives.

NUVOKU

The Nuvoku is a mid-sized chef knife designed for all-around kitchen use. Key design features include a tall heel for ample knuckle clearance, a sculpted handle and thin bolster for a secure and comfortable grip in a variety of positions, a pronounced distal taper and thin edge for cutting efficiency, and a modest edge curvature for ease of slicing, chopping, and rocking cuts. 

This shown example features a "stacked Ws" pattern-welded blade forged from a mixture of German tool steel and sawblade steel for superb edge retention, toughness, and ease of sharpening. The handle is stabilized curly Hawaiian Koa, while the bolster and spacers are made of carbon fiber, stainless steel, and G10. Marine-grade epoxy and a carbon fiber pin hold it all together.

MAPLE AND DAMASCUS NUVOKU

This Nuvoku features a flame dyed and stabilized Vermont sugar maple handle accented by a carbon fiber bolster and pin. The blade steel is a high layer damascus forged from German tool and bandsaw steels, and measures 19cm (7.5") from heel to point.

KITCHEN MULE

While large chef knives are unequaled in the tasks for which they've been designed, it's the smaller, more versatile blades we find ourselves reaching for more than any other. 

With a blade just over five inches in length and close to 3mm thick at the spine, this little mule is ready to hitch up and go to work for you day after day. 

The shown example features a damascus blade and a stabilized redwood burl handle with G10 bolster and frame and stainless pins. 

SMALL FRENCH CHEF

The blade on this mid-sized all-around kitchen knife is a high-carbon tungsten-vanadium tool steel known as 110WCrV5. Measuring 15cm (6") in length, the blade is flat-ground and sharpened to a very fine edge. This knife will cut, and cut, and cut...

The handle scales are from a beautiful piece of Australian Ringed Gidgee, one of the world's hardest woods. It's held in place by three stainless steel pins and marine-grade epoxy.
