Knife handle is mahogany, full tang. 1095 carbon steel blade has been hand-burnished and buffed on a wheel, and will start to show a characteristic rainbow-colored patina upon use; this is normal. Minor pitting present in blade steel; knife is estimated at nearly a century old but handle is tight.Wood has been sanded, oiled with pure tung oil, and buffed several times. Knife edge has been professionally rebeveled and honed by myself to 21°/side, then finished on fine leather strop to hair-whittling sharpness (12k grit). Blade is strong but very light for its length, with a slight flex, making it in my opinion very useful for fine minces as well as slicing. A very well-balanced, full sized German-style chef's knife. For those looking for a go-to workhorse in carbon steel, this guy might make a good soulmate knife for all main kitchen work. Unusually springy and light in the hand, it's a pleasure to use.
