This handmade kitchen knife has a 52100 high carbon steel blade that keeps a good edge. The blade will naturally darken with use. The handle is Micarta, a durable waterproof plastic that is a laminate of cloth and resin formed under high pressure and temperature. The rivets are solid brass with a mosaic pin in the middle. The knife should be cleaned and dried after use and the handle should be polished occasionally with beeswax furniture polish.
Never put your handmade knife in the dishwasher.
