Professional chefs will love owning one of these knives for their special presentation or personal 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 layered, powder metal die damascus Japanese stainless steel, called R2. It was specifically designed for use as a 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 exotic and rare super curly Hawaiian koa wood, a brass contoured bolster and bold red decorative accents.
