AN OBSESSIVE DEDICATION TO EXCELLENCE Bob Kramer has spent nearly two decades reducing the craft of knife making to its essence, creating his original artisan knives on his own from start to finish. In his studio, he forges the best raw materials with a relentless pursuit of perfection into some of the most beautiful and sought-after cutlery in the culinary world. Professional chefs often wait years to get their hands on one of Bob’s legendary handcrafted creations.
RAZOR-SHARP DAMASCUS BLADE The blade begins with a core of SG2, a super-premium steel with a fine grain structure that takes and maintains an incredibly sharp edge. The core is clad on each side with 50 alternating layers of nickel and Damascus stainless steel, resulting in an exceptionally strong, 101-layer blade. Features beautiful, deep-etched chevron pattern designed by Bob.
DURABLE LINEN-MICARTA HANDLE Prized as one of the most durable handle materials available, linen micarta withstands extreme temperatures and resists wear, even after prolonged use. Handle is triple riveted for strength and control, with full tang tapered to Bob’s precise specifications. Each knife features a signature center pin handcrafted by Bob himself.
CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING Blade is cryogenically hardened, rapidly cooled, and then tempered twice to maximize durability and achieve a 63 Rockwell hardness.
TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP Skilled Japanese artisans hand finish each knife using a traditional honbazuke honing technique. Blades are sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel.
