3 Inch Stainless Fruit/Paring Knife With Koa Wood & Black G10 Handle
This handmade stainless steel fruit/paring knife is crafted from Swedish 14c28n stainless steel which takes a really sharp edge. It's also quite easy steel to sharpen and holds its edge well.
It's been heat treated, including being cooled in liquid nitrogen to below -196 deg celsius, to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 rockwell. This is harder than typical (factory produced) western knives. This means that the knife will hold a sharp edge for longer. It's also ground thin which improves the ease of cutting.
The handle is made from stabilised Hawaiian Koa wood with black G10 bolsters and a thin spacer. The handle is held together with aerospace grade epoxy, two visible carbon fibre pins and a single hidden carbon fibre pin.
The blade is approximately 7.6 cm (~3 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 18.3 cm (~7.25 inches).
