A highly versatile knife that can be use to slice, chop and mince. It's primarily a vegetable knife not suitable for hacking through bones.

This blade is made from 52100 carbon steel featuring convex grind. For ideal balance of durability and edge retention, the blade is heat-treated to 62 Rockwell.

The wa style handle is made from dessert ironwood and faux ivory.

High carbon steel requires hand washing and most importantly, immediate drying to prevent corrosion—a small price to pay for a longer-lasting edge. Over time, a natural patina will form on the surface of the blade.

Blade height 89mm
Overall length 326mm
Spine thickness 2mm to 1.8mm
Edge thickness 0.6mm at 10mm, 0.3mm at 5mm, 0.1mm at 2mm
