This chef knife is hand forged from an iron clad san-mai steel with a high carbon steel core. It's a nice size for a general purpose knife, and ground very thin for cutting performance. I've made the handle from a two pieces of wood, the larger section is spalted hornbeam, and the smaller ferrule is cherry-plum from a garden in Peckham.
Total length: 295mm
Blade length: 160mm
Depth at heel: 45mm
Note: This blade is made with carbon steel which, unlike stainless steel, is 'reactive'; this means the blade will develop a patina and will change the appearance of the blade surface over time and can rust if not properly cared for. Handwash only.
