In Stock Item: 240mm Charybdis Series Whirlpool Damascus Chef Knife

$ 1,415.00

This gorgeous Japanese hand-forged 240mm (approx. 9-1/2") blade will make the perfect addition for any knife collector or cooking enthusiast.

Hand-forged in Japan by an 8th generation bladesmith, this knife is unique in its beautiful and unique whirlpool damascus pattern. Every small 'whirlpool' in the design has been individually added by hand by the blade maker!

The blade is signed in kanji with his name and local trade name by the bladesmith.

It has a double bevel (two-sided blade edge), perfect for either left or right-handed use and was forged from very high-quality R2 powder metal die stainless steel for easy upkeep and amazing edge retention.

Our signature custom, handcrafted handle is made from Hawaiian curly kiawe wood. Finding kiawe wood with curl is not easy, and the kiawe in this knife is really lovely with lots of curl and brilliant color. It also contains accents of mango and lychee woods, plus a bolster and end cap of rare, curly Hawaiian koa wood. Cinnamon accents finish the look.

Other handle features include a straight back shape with faceted edges for a secure grip and a curved underside of the handle design. It is an extremely comfortable to hold handle and well balanced for such a long Japanese blade.

  • Blade Length: 240mm (approx 9/5 inches)
  • Handle length: 5-1/4 inches

Included in this price, is our handcrafted ceramic honing rod with a complimenting handle of kiawe, mango and koa woods.
