Based on the gyuto, Japan’s answer to the European chef’s knife, the blade is thinner than traditional European knives, allowing for more delicate work, but double-beveled for convenience and durability. Designed to handle most tasks in the kitchen, this versatile blade can be used to slice or to chop, using the classic “rocking” motion. Hand-forged in 1095 high-carbon steel, which is easier to sharpen at home and holds an edge longer than stainless steel, each knife is finished with a full tang octagonal handle in rosewood or spalted maple.
Inspired by traditional Japanese and European knifemakers, Fell Knives are handmade by Nicholas Berkofsky in his home workshop in Los Angeles. Read more about his process and inspiration here.
