The design and manufacturer of an 8" Chef's knife.
This knife has a blade of hardened carbon steel with removable handles of both walnut and bronze. The handles can be interchanged to alter the feel, weight and balance of the knife.
The blade was cut from a billet of steel and roughly shaped before being heat treated and tempered. Final finishing and sharpening was done by hand. Each handle was machined with internal pockets that allow them to be flipped to adjust the balance of the knife. Rare earth magnets were installed into each handle half and these firmly attach the handles to the blade.
