ABS Journeyman Bladesmith Steve Grosvenor designs and makes his knives with an individual and singular eye to perfection. He gives every blade his complete attention in terms of detail, finish, and aesthetics, sometimes taking as long as two weeks to complete a knife. It certainly shows in this great example of his work. These are beautifully crafted items from the blade to the wonderful handles, each possessing a unique quality and design ethic.
One of his favorite steels is the evergreen tool steel known as AISI 52100. 52100 was developed for use in industrial bearings and has excellent wear resistance and strength. It also makes an excellent knife blade as a mono steel construction or it can be san-mai welded with other steels. Steve uses a stock removal method to form this blade and hardens the steel to 62 HRC.
Fillet knives are perfect for processing small to medium sized fish. The thinness and shape of the blade allow for the very efficient removal of the skin while the flexible blade and pointed tip can run along spine bones without damaging the delicate flesh.
The elegant curved blade is mated to a beautifully shaped western style handle made from dyed burl wood. As an added bonus the knife is furnished with a lovely tooled leather sheath.
