It not only looks beautiful but feels beautifully balanced in the hand, which will be, for most users, a most pleasant surprise. Like all carbon steel cutlery, it will rust if not properly kept dry, but takes a RAZOR edge like no other, and outperforms stainless steel in almost every way it is VERY sharp now, coming fresh back from Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles--the best in the business. As with all carbon steel blades you must wipe it down after each use but its beauty and superior performance are worth it. Condition is superb with a wonderful patina over its octagonal fluted cherrywood handle and carbon steel blade, which is anchored at bolster using a dome-shaped carbon steel ferrule, then iron-riveted over a full and tapered tang. It will provide its lucky new user with heirloom quality for use, for display and for posterity.
Measures 13" long with 7" by 4.25 blade, but in terms of beauty and utility, comes up HUGE by any measure! Don't pass up an opportunity to truly elevate the quality of cutlery in YOUR kitchen, amateur or professional.
And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for chef on your list! A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher. Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter. Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly.
I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
