Knife handle is buffalo horn with a mosaic pin, full tang. 1095/15n20 carbon steel blade has been hand-burnished and buffed on a wheel, and is recently beginning to show a characteristic rainbow-colored patina. Spine and choil have been softened.Knife edge has been professionally rebeveled and honed by myself to 22°/side, then finished on fine leather strop to hair-whittling sharpness (12k grit). Blade is very hefty, adept at powering through herbs and the like. A very wieldy, albeit chunky, German-style cook's knife. For those looking for a smaller, heavy soulmate knife for kitchen work, this is the one. The item "Refinished Damascus Carbon Steel Chef's Knife, 7.5" is in sale since Saturday, April 23, 2016.
