The new Chef / BUTCHER Knives feature handmade D2 steel blades, with Elk or Deer antler handles. The series is available in three combinations and come in a very attractive handmade wood box (also made in the USA). They are exceptional culinary tools that will impress the most selective professional chef. They are a great conversation starter and also make an attractive addition to any kitchen counter top.
The cleaver is well balanced with a curved end for "rocking" the knife when needed or for slicing. This design works well for meats, vegetables and fruits. Both the cleaver and fork are made for years of use if properly taken care of.
ABOUT D2 STEEL:
D2 steel is an air hardening, high carbon, and high chromium tool steel possessing extremely high wear resisting properties. The high chromium content provides good corrosion resistance, (but it can rust if it is not properly taken care of). We heat treat our D2 blades to a 60 Rockwell hardness and the blades will retain their factory edge for extended periods of heavy use. When it does come time to re-sharpen, this high carbon tool steel is easier to sharpen than stainless steel, (the edge will not crumble or roll like stainless steel does when sharpening). D2 steel is primarily used by the best custom knife makers, and anyone whom has ever used a good D2 steel blade in the field, raves about the steels cutting ability, durability, and edge holding properties. We strongly believe D2 is the best steel you can use for a hardcore, working knife!
