6 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife With Purple Heart & Bog Oak
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 Purple Heart wood. The bolsters are made from English Bog Oak. 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 bolster uses hidden carbon fibre pins.
The blade is approximately 15.3 cm (6 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 28.7 cm (~11.25 inches). The blade is 4.7 cm deep at the heel. It's super comfy in both small and large hands.
