4 Inch Stainless Paring Utility Knife With Cherry & 2 Tone Maple
This handmade stainless steel 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 to below -76 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 pieces of stabilised 2 tone Maple wood. The bolsters are made from beautiful pieces of English Cherry burl. A thin liner of black coloured G10 material is also used between the wood and metal. The handle is held together with aerospace grade epoxy, stainless steel pins in the Maple and hidden carbon fibre pins in the Cherry.
The blade is approximately 10.3 cm (~4 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 24 cm (~9.5 inches). It's super comfy in both small and large hands.
