The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the service industry has been unprecedented. With the closure of businesses, both permanent and temporary, there are countless service professionals who are currently out of work and left worried about their future.
In an effort to help support the industry who has always been so supportive of us, we are raffling off an amazing knife with all proceeds going to Restaurant Workers' Community Foundation's COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.
The knife we are raffling off is a 15 cm (6 inch) Kasumi Series White Carbon #2 deba. This knife is hand forged in the sword making tradition from two pieces of steel. The combination of high grade carbon steel and bladesmithing technique results in a knife suitable for the most experienced culinary professional. To sweeten the deal, this knife features an amazing custom handle by Grimm Knife Co. The handle is handmade using red mallee burl-acrylic hybrid and acrylic.
Our regular Kasumi Series Deba retails for $430. With the Grimm Knife Co handle, this is a once in a lifetime knife. All it takes is one raffle ticket to win it!
