The Jasper Scimitars


The Jasper Scimitars @ 2017 Michael H. Mara

These graceful, sturdy, general purpose Chef's knives have 6-3/4" blades of 1/16"440C, a swelled spine for rigidity with upswept tip, forged to shape with an as-forged finish, hardened to HRC58, sharp as a razor. Full tang construction for strength with nickel silver pins and Jasper scales. The knives are 11" overall length. Two are sold, the remaining one is available for $309.

440C is a high carbon, high chromium, premium cutlery steel, so the finish on this knife will stay as is, and won't tarnish nor rust like a simple alloy steel such as 1080. The as-forged finish, besides giving the blade an 'ancient' look, also greatly helps prevent food sticking to the blade by reducing the surface tension. Makes a great slicer, carver, or steak knife, it simply floats in the hand.
