In Stock Item: 2-pc New 'Camelback' Chef Knife Set

$ 1,475.00

This new R2 hand-forged stainless steel chef knife set features two individually hand-forged blades by our top-of-the line Japanese bladesmith who also makes our popular Charybdis and Raptor design series knives. 

The set is being sold as knives only. Included in this set are the following blade styles and sizes:

  • 180mm Bunka
  • 130mm Petty

We have named this all new addition to our custom chef knife line the "Camelback" series because of the curvature of the tang and the impression made by the beautiful, but simple look of the damascus pattern. The blade has a wavy desert or mountain range damascus pattern with a polished finish.

We believe they will quickly become your favorite chef knives for everyday use!

Each blade has been signed by the bladesmith in kanji with both his name and domestic trade name logo.

The R2 powder metal die Japanese stainless steel is, in our opinion, the best stain-resistant cutlery steel available and boasts superior edge retention and performance capabilities.

Both pieces feature a full-tang 'western' style construction. The solid tang and blade were shaped and forged from a single solid piece of bar stock steel. There are no welded sections like found on most production made knives. They are built to last a lifetime and beyond with proper maintenance.

This design has a slightly longer handle. This combined with the slight curvature of the spine and wider blade makes it an ideal knife for chefs with larger hands or people who simply like to hold their knife fully on the handle or enjoy the weight and feel of a larger handled knife.

The handcrafted handles have been made from beautiful, exotic curly Hawaiian koa wood. Decorative handle accents include a short Mozambiue ebony bolster, nickel-silver pins, a larger mosaic decorative pin and a nickel-silver decorative accent spacer.

A handmade koa wood box, sheath, or stand may be ordered to compliment this set.
