This 10” blade was forged by hand in the Chicago shop. Handcrafted from high-carbon 1095 steel and fitted with a Wa Style handle made from Hawaiian Mango. The blade features a gentle S-grind, sanded by hand and then etched to create a smoky patina. Elegant, lean and a must-have for any kitchen.
If you'd like to add a leather sheath we can custom make one for this knife. You can that here.
Note: We think the patina is beautiful, unique and like a snowflake no two are alike. It’s a sign of a well-used, well-loved knife. The blade will develop a natural patina and darken with use, and it may also stain if acidic food residue is not promptly removed.
