Thinner than a chef’s knife, which allows for thinner and more precise slices, our Spectre Carving Knife’s amazingly sharp, precision-forged blade has been sharpened using the traditional Japanese Honbazuke method to a perfect 14-degree angle per side. With its Granton Edge scalloped cutouts providing minimal sticking, it's perfect for carving thin, uniform slices from cooked poultry like turkey or chicken, slicing large roasts, brisket, and pork, and can also be used for filleting large fish.

The Spectre Series
Gorgeous. Elegant. Ferociously formidable with unparalleled craftsmanship. With its special steel composition, our AUS-8 blades meet the standard of a tough, rust-resistant knife with a significantly long-lasting razor-sharp edge. Carbon and Molybdenum increase rigidity and high wear resistance, Chromium and Nickel increase mechanical strength and edge retention, and Manganese helps increase hardness, reduce structural wear, and make for easy sharpening. Put that all together, add our heat-treatment and hardening process to ensure durability, increased sharpness, and abrasion resistance, and you have yourself a new culinary life companion.

Adorned with an opulent mosaic pin made of brass and copper, our mirror-polish imported Spanish Pakkwood handles feel as if they were made just for you. They have a traditional Japanese D-Shape that tucks right into the palm with unrivaled comfort and control for both righties and lefties. Composed of wood fibers and fortified with resins, our Spectre Series pakkawood is exceptionally dense, possesses incredible strength, won't crack or split, and has high water- resistant capabilities with easy maintenance.
