This beautifully crafted knife by Gabe Mabry from the Doberman Forge sounds like a true work of art and the result of meticulous craftsmanship. A culmination of his culinary background and knack for design, this knife offers peak performance, showcasing a blend of traditional and modern elements.
MagnaCut is a proprietary steel type developed by Crucible Industries in collaboration with knifemaker and metallurgist Larrin Thomas. It was introduced to the market in 2021.
MagnaCut was designed to balance three primary qualities of knife steels: corrosion resistance, toughness, and edge retention. Traditionally, increasing one of these qualities meant decreasing at least one of the others, but MagnaCut aims to offer high levels in all three categories.
The design details, like the slightly straighter spine that raises the tip creating a more rounded edge from the mid-point, contribute to its versatility. It's perfect for a variety of cutting styles, including the push cutting technique thanks to a flat area near the heel.
Gabe makes knives that are not just functional tools, but unique pieces of craftsmanship, capturing the essence of a true artisan.
