This general purpose was forged from high carbon W2 steel laminated between two pieces of historic wrought iron (from an old wagon axle) and two slices of pure nickel and has a handle made from Welsh walnut.
The wrought on this knife has delaminated at one point leaving a strange smooth pool which I rather like, or perhaps you could call it extra character. This knife combines a high degree of functionality, combined with heaps of character. 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.
