#167

European style chef knife in high carbon steel. This is a very light knife and a great all round knife. One of my favorites.
Not being stainless it is not for everyone as it requires more care in order to develop a nice patina, rather than to rust. If well maintained it is a great knife, with a steel that is easy to sharpen.


Blade


The blade has a convex grind and is tapered from the bolster to the tip.

The spine and choil has been rounded to make the knife comfortable to use with a pinch grip.


Steel: 52100 high carbon steel
52100 was originally developed for making ball bearings from, but has been a very popular high-carbon steel for knives for many years. It holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen.

It will form a patina from the contract with the food it cuts, but it does not rust easily.


Hardness: 61-62 HRC

Handle

Material: Stabilised bog oak

 
Bolster and spacers: Stainless 303 bolster pinned to the blade with 303 pins, G10 and stainless spacers.

Treatment: The handle is sealed with Danish Oil.
