Jackson Cannon Bar Knife
+ $ shipping surcharge
One knife, many uses.
There's almost nothing this knife can't do. We use the flat edge as a bench scraper to clean our counters, the tip to remove fruit seeds, the squared end and blade to form perfect citrus twists.
Jackson Cannon, an award-winning Boston bartender collaborated on the design and gave the knife its name, and he certainly knows his way around a bar tool. The expertise behind this knife is evident in how many uses it has, and how durable it is. The blade is precision ground and hand-edged, and the handle is made of polished cocobolo, a tropical hardwood prized for its durability (the wood's natural oils resist wet environments -- perfect for a bar).
