8 1/4 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife

8 1/4 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife

This handmade stainless steel chefs 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 to below -76 deg celsius, to achieve a hardness of approximately 60 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 a piece of stabilised ash burl wood. The bolsters are made from a black material called g10; a highly durable mix of resin and fibreglass. To tie the look of the bolsters and wood together, a thin liner of black G10 material is also used. The handle is held together with aerospace grade epoxy and stainless steel pins. 

The blade is approximately 21 cm (~8 1/4 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 34 cm (~13.5 inches). It's super comfy in both small and large hands.
