Brown Maple Chef Knife
This chef knife is hand forged from my own blend of laminated steel; a mild steel jacket and a single layer of nickel on either side of a 26c3 high carbon steel core. This knife is medium weight, feeling substaintial in the hand but thin behind the edge for cutting performance. The handle is handmade from a gorgeous piece of rippled maple, with a steel cap and pin. The maple is a souvenir of sorts, brought home with me after my time spent training with Master Bladesmiths in the US last spring.
This blade is made with high carbon steel which, unlike stainless steel, is 'reactive'; this means the blade will develop a patina, changing the appearance of the blade surface as you use it (see T&C's). I prefer to work with high carbon steels over stainless steels due to their incredible edge retention and ease of sharpening at home.
This blade can rust if not properly cared for. Handwash only
