This general purpose kitchen knife was forged from three layers of two dissimilar metals; historic wrought iron on the outside, and high carbon W2 tool steel for the core and cutting edge. The handle is carved from figured walnut. Both handle and blade have heaps of character which will develop and change over time, as well as a high degree of functionality. The balance point and taper are shown in the photos (last two photos).
Please read the care and guarantee section before purchase. Both blade and handle are made from untreated natural materials that will patinate and age over time, but with a bit of care will last a lifetime.
Specifications as follows:
Blade length; ca. 205mm
Blade heel height; ca. 57mm
Handle length including bolster; ca. 130mm
