A visitor to my forge picked this knife and said “this knife is a heathen knife”. To be honest I’m not sure if that means it is for heathens or if the knife itself is heathen. Whatever the case I took it as a compliment.
This is a general use “santoku” style kitchen knife with a hand forged, water quenched blade made from reclaimed materials; an old Sheffield file (W2 steel) folded between two pieces of historic wrought iron (ca. 1855) that came from an East London church yard. The hexagonal handle is in toasted English oak. Both handle and blade have heaps of character, as well as a high degree of functionality. The balance point and blade taper are shown in the photos (last two photos). The blade is indeed very beefy.
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. 165mm
Blade heel height; ca. 53mm
Handle length; ca. 128mm
