Something a bit special. This is a truly unique European style chef knife with a touch of flare. The blade is constructed from 3 main layers of steel –  a piece of high carbon steel sandwiched between 2 pieces of 60 layer pattern welded steel and ‘laddered’ – this is where the layers are cut into and then flattened out again to ‘disrupt’ the layers and give the beautiful and unique wavy pattern you see. A meaty knife for hard work but also with a slim tip for delicate cuts. the handle is reclaimed phosphor bronze and ebonised holm oak. Comes with a matching Saya (sheath) in the same wood with a brass and antler locking pin. An heirloom for everyday use.
