Luxury for the kitchen, the 'Charybdis' design collectible cutlery line is simply stunning and will become a favorite 'go-to' knife for vegetable or meat prep. And you will love the 'tanto' style tip and the extra versatility it provides.

Beautiful, unique, and of the highest quality, this knife is functional art meant to be used and passed to future generations.

Custom designed, this bunka, hand-forged exclusively for Salter Fine Cutlery, is made from a very high quality Japanese stainless powder metal die steel, called R2

Every knife has been forged from a solid bar of steel. There are no welded sections like you find in many production knives.  

In addition, the custom pattern containing many small whirlpool shapes, was created in Japan by an 8th generation bladesmith to our own Salter Fine Cutlery proprietary design. He made the blade using time-honored traditional Japanese forging methods. Every small whirlpool shape was created individually by his hand! The blade is signed in kanji by the blademaker.

Our custom handle was created on the Big Island of Hawaii. Completely handcrafted, it features exotic and rare super curly Hawaiian koa and several decorative accents. The knife has a straight faceted shape with angled metal end cap.

The knife is offered as knife only. Optional storage options, including keepsake boxes similar to the box shown in the photo, stands or sheaths may be added to any order.

This knife, as shown, has been sold.
