Description: The slender, thin slicing blade makes a utility knife a great choice for slicing fruit, vegetables, or meat.
This handmade knife is the masterwork of bladesmith Kelly Dallyn. The blade is O1 carbon steel that has been hand forged. Because O1 is a carbon steel, this knife should be dried after use. We also recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade from rust and oxidation. A differential heat treatment results in a soft, supportive spine, with a keen, long lasting edge. The blade is brought to a razor edge and has strong edge geometry. Filework at the spine provides a sure grip. A distal tapered blade results in an optimal balance. The exhibition grade bocote handle is set with three stainless steel Colby rivets. A great choice for both a home or commercial kitchen. Exceptional fit throughout.
