This very small paring knife is hand forged from Japanese VG10 67 layer high carbon stainless steel. The damascus blade and is fitted with a koa handle and nickel silver pins. The koa I picked up when I was at Blade Show in the US. I try to use only locally sourced, felled timbers and slightly regret buying this little block of wood, but it was so glam I momentarily lost my principles, and decided it was 'local' enought to me while I was there. Doh!
Total length: 150mm
Blade length: 75mm
Depth at heel: 20mm
Note: this knife requires handwashing only - no dishwashers, ever!!!!!
