$ 1,030.00

For an impressive addition to your kitchen, or a beautiful gift idea, this new 170mm small chef knife will become a favorite go-to knife for every day use.

This newest addition to our 'Charybdis' design collectible cutlery line features a hidden tang design for an extra light and comfortable to use chef knife. Use it for small cuts of meat, salads, vegetables, sandwiches, or any small job in your daily meal prep.

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

Custom designed by and hand-forged exclusively for Salter Fine Cutlery, this knife is made from a very high quality layered damascus Japanese powder metal die stainless steel called R2. It is regarded as one of the best cutlery steels to be found anywhere.

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 blade-smith to our own Salter Fine Cutlery proprietary design. He made the blade using time-honored traditional Japanese forging methods. Every little whirlpool was added by hand during the forging process. The blade is a work of art and has been signed in kanji by the blade-maker.

Our custom handle was created on the Big Island of Hawaii. Completely handcrafted, it features exotic and rare super curly Hawaiian koa wood, a Mozambique ebony black bolster and a decorative accent pin.

The knife is offered as knife only. Ask about ordering an optional stand or beautiful handcrafted Salter Fine Cutlery keepsake box.
