Gabe Mabry of the Doberman Forge, located in Albemarle, North Carolina is the maker of this beautiful creation.
This 190mm fillet knife is fairly stiff and made with 52100 steel. It will make short work of filleting fish but is stiff enough to also do a good job on pork and beef. Gabe came from a culinary background so he designs and grinds his knives for peak performance. It has mono steel construction using the highly regarded HD2 steel imported from Japan which takes a great edge and is semi stainless.
The knife has a full tang which is beautifully shaped to allow for a very comfortable and attractively sculpted handle, in this case made from a double-dyed burl. The blade is finished to an extremely high standard as is the handle, resulting in a very unique knife package made for you by a true artisan of the forge.
