8 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife With Blue Spalted Tamarind & Elm Burr Handle
This handmade stainless steel chefs knife is crafted from Swedish 14c28n stainless steel which takes a really nice edge. It's also quite easy steel to re-sharpen and holds its edge well. The steel is made from a high percentage of recycled material - making it one of the most environmentally friendly cutlery steels available.
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 beautiful piece of stabilised Elm burr wood and spalted Tamarind that's been dyed blue. The stabilising process makes the wood more durable without affecting the colour. The handle is held together with aerospace grade epoxy and stainless steel pins. The blade has a satin belt finish.
The blade is approximately 203 mm (~8 Inches) long and the overall length is approximately 335 mm (~13.25 inches). It's super comfy in both small and large hands.
