Black Widow Integral Chefsknife
Black Raven is a 135mm integral pettyknife with a seldomly seen horizontal tang construction. Combining four different alloys of steel allows me to make this multi colour damascus pattern.
The feather damascus pattern flows troughouth the knife from the tang into the bolster, into the blade and is a true eyecatcher.
The comfortable handle is made of ebony scale with stainless steel corby bolts. Because of the integral bolster, the balance is slightly rearward into the handle.
All scale, tang and bolster edges have a light chamfer to prevent any hard uncomfortable edges if the wood moves a bit over the upcoming years of use.
For great cutting performance, this knife has a subtle convex grind into a thin tip.
As said, the knife is made of high carbon steel, which means that a patina will form on the steel and some maintenance is required to prevent rust. A regular coat of oil helps to protect the knife and keep the deep blacks looking shiny.
