Its blade still shines like stainless steel, but be assured, it will discolor and rust if not properly maintained by wiping it dry after each use. This mild hassle is more than offset, though, but the superb performance of a carbon steel blade. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a revelation. Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure. The knife is also hand-forged, unlike modern knives by Dick, Wusthof or Sabatier, which are hot-drop forged nowadays i.Notice how beautifully its blade was forged, which you can best see in the photos showing it from atop the spine of blade where it begins very thick atop the handle but tapers to a whisper thinness at the point. Its tang also extends all the way through the handle without ANY gaps or spacing between the steel and the handle scales. Notice the way the tang grows more thin as you get closer to the butt of the handle or towards the tip? You can't achieve that kind of detail even with the best technology--only with good old-fashioned blacksmithing and elbow grease. The handle is made of genuine ebony-warm to the touch and much more beautiful than the ubiquitous black plastic found on pricey cutlery nowadays.
Measures 19-1/8" with a 12.75" blade--but it's. Razor edge and balance make it come up HUGE for any job in your kitchen, large or small.
