Berkel Primitive Kitchen Knife
Can't wait to see what kind of primitive injuries I sustain trying to prep dinner with Berkel's Primitive Kitchen Knife. That's not to say I don't like it. The design is very cool, a fused blade and handle reminiscent of a rock prehistoric humans would have whittled to a sharp edge. Berkel's knife also looks like it would feel good nestled in the palm of my hand.
But all that fusing and nestling makes for a blade that stays pretty damn close to my fingers during its proposed slicing of fruits and vegetables, and filleting of raw meat and fish.
The Primitive Kitchen Knife is made of forged stainless steel 1.4116 alloyed with nitrogen. It measures about 8-1/2" long, and weighs about 10-1/2 ounces.
