$ 1,175.00

This 'Charybdis' design-series collectible chef knife features a western style full-tang design with 200mm (approx 8-inch) blade.

We are sure it will become a favorite 'go-to' knife for most of your everyday cooking needs.

We have sold several of these knives to professional chefs,  who love owning one for their special presentation or at home knife.

Beautiful, unique, and of the highest quality, this knife is functional art meant to be used every day. 

Custom designed by and hand-forged exclusively for Salter Fine Cutlery, this knife is made from a very high quality layered damascus Japanese stainless steel called R2. It was specifically designed for use as a very high-quality cutlery steel and is widely known as the best Japanese cutlery stainless steel available.

Every knife has been forged from a solid bar of steel. There are no welded sections like you find in many production knives.  You can rest assured that your knife will last for a lifetime of use and can be passed to future generations with proper care.

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, including adding each little whirlpool by hand.

Our custom handle was created on the Big Island of Hawaii. Completely handcrafted, it features rare Hawaiian curly koa wood, stainless steel contoured bolster and black decorative accents.
