This is a food prep knife designed for users who value excellent sharpness and edge retention.

The hammered pattern on the blade reduces the overall flat surface area which aids in preventing food from sticking to the blade.

The handles are octagonal ash & quince wood

OAL ~380mm
Height ~48mm
Thickness ~3.1mm (forged taper)
