La Cocina

"La Cocina" chef's knife, obverse side view in 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, 304 stainless steel bolsters, Lace Amethyst gemstone handle, hand-carved and tooled leather sheath
"La Cocina" Fine Handmade Chef's, Utility, Working Knife

La Cocina means the kitchen, and that is exactly what this knife is designed for. This is an early design of mine, created for fruits, medium to small vegetables, and numerous tasks the chef would encounter. Truly, La Cocina has become one of my most popular knife designs, and I've even made versions of this knife that are used in utility and hunting chores, as well as being held for collection value. The blade of this knife is wide, with a deep hollow grind that makes for an incredibly thin geometry at the cutting edge. This particular La Cocina has a 440C high chromium mirror polished stainless steel blade for high corrosion resistance and high wear resistance with easy cleaning. The tang is fully tapered and the knife has full bold vine pattern filework throughout and a fileworked choil. The mirror finished blade has just enough drop at the grind termination and choil to keep the fingers off the cutting board. The handle shape has a slight forefinger groove for control, and the butt of the handle drops slightly so the handle does not dig into the palm. This La Cocina has mirror polished high nickel, high chromium austenitic stainless steel bolsters which are dovetailed and bed a pair of beautiful Lace Amethyst gemstone handle scales. This gemstone is very hard and tough, taking and keeping a glassy polish for decades and decades. It's fascinating to see the banding, patterns, crystal, and orb forms in the amethyst quartz.

Like many of my individual kitchen knives, this La Cocina has a sheath for storage and carry, and it's made of 9-10 oz. leather shoulder, hand-carved and tooled, highlighted with light purple to match the handle, hand-stitched, lacquered and sealed.

A great knife for the kitchen, utility, or collection.
