This general purpose was forged from high carbon W2 steel laminated between two pieces of historic wrought iron and has a handle made from walnut.
This knife combines a high degree of functionality, combined with heaps of character. In the case of this blade, the character of the wrought iron is, er, pretty wild and has some funky delamination in the wrought iron. It’s the nature of puddled iron and anyway I like to think of it as sculptural. I am an artiste, after all. Due to the natural, untreated nature of both high carbon steel, iron and the handle material, this knife will patinate and change over time. I have put a starter patina on it, which will change with use. Please see the care and guarantee section of my website before purchase.
