Walnut Utility Knife
This utility knife is hand forged from a homemade laminate, a layer of mild steel over either side of a 26c3 (spicy white) core steel which takes the edge.
It's a nice general purpose knife, larger than a paring knife but smaller than a chef, and ground very thin behind the edge for cutting performance.
The handle is handmade with English Walnut and a steel cap and pin.
Total length: 285mm
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.
