Custom Order Chef Knives: Exclusive Raptor Design Series
Limited sizes remaining in stock. We are phasing out this line and replacing with our new VillageForge collection. Same bladesmith, similar hammered pattern, just new and better!
Our Raptor exclusive design series of chef knives are truly amazing to look at and use every day. Each knife is individually hand-forged in Japan of superior R2 powder metal die stainless steels. This unique series feature a beautifully striking polished claw mark pattern paired with grey matte damascus lines nearest the blade edge.
The distinctive styling of these knives combines the rocking motion of a traditional European-style chef knife with the edge precision and high quality steel that makes Japanese chef blades so desirable. The wider heel provides increased space between the handle and the cutting board, making this knife an ideal choice for home cooks and professional chefs with larger hands.
