The sky is the limit with this knife. It's blade was hand-forged from some of the finest carbon steel ever forged and it will continue to discolor and rust if not properly maintained by wiping it dry after each use. This mild hassle is more than offset, though, by the superior 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 the tang of the blade extends all the way through the handle and 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 easy on the eyes--much more beautiful than the ubiquitous black plastic found on pricey cutlery nowadays. The handle is also inset with F. Dick's arrow logo on a diamond-shaped escutcheon, which helps us date the piece as well as providing an extra dimension of beauty and detail. There is virtually nothing a knife like this can't do, from chopping a clove of garlic into wafers to reducing a 50lb.
