Damascus Kitchen Utility

Sylvan Style Kitchen Knives

5″ Damascus Kitchen Utility Knife – 9-3/4″ Overall

The raised handle gives you room between hand and cutting board. The tapered junction from blade to bolster adds comfort to the pinch grip. The sculpted handle lends not only style, but comfort no mater what grip is used, and positive indexing of the blade during use. I forged this blade from a Damascus billet I created of 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels. Here’s a quick article I wrote on the process: Random Damascus. My Sylvan Damascus style features a brass bolster with vulcanized fiber spacers, a wood handle with brass pin, and Sally Martin mosaic pin. This handle is figured Bubinga – finished in a mix of bee’s wax, carnauba wax, and food grade mineral oil that is both food safe and stands up to kitchen use.
