The listing is for the 8" Chef Knife only.
Twist damascus steel wrapped in dark natural horn handle is the timeless beauty that will never go out of style. It's a full tang knife with a polished steel bolster and gorgeous three star pin representing our great home state of Tennessee! The natural ox horn is a deep black with occasional white and grey flecks, and the knife even comes with a leather sheath for your storage and traveling needs.
What could be better than one of these beautiful knives? Four of them! You can find the other three sizes in the listings (unless sold out at the moment). Mix and match to build your own sweet set. We also have other handles in the same style, so go nuts. Be different. Just be you!
Damascus is 7x7 with 5 folds (448 layers).
Disclaimer: These are knives. They're sharp. Make sure what you're cutting is food, not fingers. You don't want to have to learn a new nose picking finger. You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.
Damascus pattern and horn grain will vary. Like, a lot. It's a surprise every time!
1085 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (0000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.
You can use WD40 or rust remover, just be sure to clean the blade thoroughly before use, especially if using it for food.
The key is keeping it dry. Any moisture that sits on the metal will cause rust. That being said, I've had some in my drawer for years with no issues!
I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!
Everything you see in the listings is in stock, but we may not have the quantity you need. Send me a note with any questions.
For large custom orders:
These are usually orders of 10+, and you can go full custom. We can do almost any amount given enough time.
You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.
Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!
Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.
-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.
We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!
I'm open to the discussion. Send me a note!

Absolutely beautiful knife! Ordered as a Christmas present for my boyfriend and he loves it. Very sharp and includes a leather holder that is also perfect for keeping it protected!

Wow- just wow! My husband never asks me for anything and is impossible to buy for, but this year he asked me for a chef's knife specifically from AIMblades. I am so excited to give this to him- it is absolutely gorgeous and the engraving was done so well and so quickly. I am so excited to get him something he will love and use. Thank you!!
