This s-grind chef's knife is crafted from 5160 & 1520N Damascus high carbon steel and hardened to 60 Rockwell C. Its sculpted handle is crafted from stabilized maple burl. The insert is titanium, torched to a vibrant purple. The blade has been hand rubbed to a satin finish and acid etched for contrast.

Each knife includes a handmade leather wrap which, like all Nordquist products, is crafted in-house. The case is made from 6oz oil tanned leather sourced from S.B. Foot Tanning Company, the principal supplier of leather for Red Wing Shoes. An auburn leather lace is woven into the supple leather, securing the knife inside. This simple case is as functional as it is elegant, offering safe storage for your new knife—or perhaps your old one!
