Ferrum Technology is headquartered in Portland, OR where they made these extraordinary knives. The steel is from PA; the black walnut and maple handles are repurposed from a neighbors farm.
The 6" & 8" Chef's Knife will help ease the culinary tasks of slicing and dicing, mincing and chopping. Re-thinking the entire process how knives are made and using new technology, the knife-making experts at Ferrum Technologies incorporate advanced production techniques, and metals with greater purity and density for fantastic cutting performance. Each knife in the Reserve Collection features a handsome, ergonomically contoured handle made of reclaimed black walnut and polished to a gorgeous luster. Ferrum knives are built using unique metal forming techniques to look great, feel great in the hand, and deliver razor sharp performance.
The blade is forged from powdered metal for greater density and purity, with 61 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention. The finished blade is hand-sharpened to a 16-degree cutting angle, with a convex "apple seed" edge. Because of Ferrum's unique manufacturing process, the blade is less brittle and easier to sharpen than others of comparable hardness.
The handle is made from reclaimed Black Walnut and contoured to fit perfectly in your hand for a comfortable grip and greater control while cutting.
