#a411 Ken Onion “Chive”

April 2, 2009

040209I have a thing for pocket knives, as you’ve probably noticed by now.

At some point I got it into my head that I should own a blade of Damascus steel.

The Ken Onion Chive is about as small a piece of the mythically beautiful multi-layered metal as you can buy. It’s also wickedly sharp and flips open at the brush of a finger.

    Yeah, but does the blade taste slightly salty?

    Allegedly, that’s one of the characteristics of Damascus steel – that the steel itself actually “haz a flavr.”

    Important tip: taste the FLAT OF THE BLADE. I said, FLAT OF THE BLADE … ah hell. Go ahead, Paleface, speak with forked tongue…
