8 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife With Ash & Purpleheart Handle
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 with liquid nitrogen to below -196 deg celsius, to achieve a hardness of approximately 62 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 purpleheart wood. 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 20 cm (~8 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 33 cm (~13 inches). It's super comfy in both small and large hands.
