Olive Kitchen Knife
A light and sharp hand-forged kitchen knife. Made from W2 steel with a water quenched hamon, and finished with a figured olive wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The knife features a 8.25 inch blade with a 1.75 inch tall heel. It weights 4.5 oz, or 128 grams, and is balanced at the makers mark. It is tempered back to 61 RC, for a long lasting edge which can still be easily resharpened. The handle is contoured for comfort in a variety of different grips. The blade sports some laddered alloy banding visible above the hamon, as a result of the water hardening.
