Cherry Plum and Mystery Burr Chef
This chef knife is hand forged from laminated steel; a mild steel jacket on either side of a 52100 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 lovely piece of Cherry Plum from Peckham and mystery species Burr timber from Scotland.
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.
