8 Inch Stainless Steel Chefs Knife With Masir birch and green micarta handle
This handmade stainless steel chefs knife is crafted from Sheffield sf100 stainless steel which takes a really nice edge. It's also quite easy steel to re-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 masir birch wood. The stabilising process makes the wood more durable without affecting the colour. The bolster is made from green micarta. 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.
