Handmade by Daniel Hilgenberg of Silverthorn Knife & Tool. Blade is 01 carbon steel hardened to 58 Rockwell with a highly rot and damage resistant ipe wood handle held fast with stainless and brass loveless rivets. 01 is very similar to aogami in it's alloy composition just with a smaller amount of tungsten.
We are very happy to offer these high-performance boning knives to our butcher knife line up, these are tough, nimble and hold a great edge without being at all difficult to sharpen.
Designed by Daniel Hilgenberg and chef & butcher Justin Meddis from Rose's in Durham NC. to be able to both keep up with the demands of large production butchery and to do clean precise work, these have received rave reviews from the butchers we know who have been using them and those we have introduced them to recently.
