This general purpose kitchen knife was forged from five layers of dissimilar metals; historic wrought iron on the outside, high carbon W2 tool steel on the inside, and these separated from each other by a layer of pure nickel. The handle is carved from reclaimed 18th century oak. Both handle and blade have heaps of character which will develop and change over time, as well as a high degree of functionality. The nickel layer will remain bright silver as the rest of the blade patinates. 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. 175mm
Blade heel height; ca. 52mm
Handle length including bolster; ca. 120mm
