Chef’s Knives

I’ve gotten two amazing chef’s knives from knifemaker Ron Oka

The first is a beautiful Tiger Stripe Maple handled knife with 64 layers of Damascus stainless steel with a VG-10 core

Randall Made

From the Randall website: Orders are limited to one knife per household every three months. Orders received now are being scheduled for shipment in approximately 4 years, year 2019.

That is a long wait to receive a knife. Well you don’t have to wait quite that long if you’re interested in a nice Randall Bird& Trout knife
