Customer ReviewsWrite a review
This knife is one of the most beautiful carbon-steels I've come across. Its patina looks stunning against the steel, and gives it a professional finishing look.
The weight of this knife is very well balanced between the blade and the handle. It is on the heavier side of things, but that is often what you are looking for in these types of knives.
The blade itself is very sharp, though due to shipment I would recommend polishing it with a 5/6000 grit whetstone (if you have one of course). It is easy to sharpen and maintain and the knife comes with a sheath to ensure it isn't damaged wherever you store it. The sheath is very good in terms of quality and how it fits the blade.
The handle appears to be of very durable nature, and the dark colour of it gives it a great and appeasing look. It fits well in the hand and feels right in terms of size and weight.
Overall this knife is a very fine addition to anyone's collection if they are willing to care for it (like any other carbon steel knife). And whilst it took a while to arrive because of COVID-19 (Which is very reasonable and understandable), I think I can expect to see this knife staying with me for years to come.
Perfect better than expected . I use it for everything
Brilliant knife for the money; sharp, comfortable and just the right weight. Very pleased with the product. Took a little while to ship, but that is expected with the current situation. I can’t fault the product though.
Great knife, perfectly weighted and a lovely balance. Comfortable grip, very sharp, and the blunt edge is perfect for smashing open coconuts! Took a couple of weeks to arrive due to the current global difficulties, but totally worth waiting for. An absolute bargain, I'm very pleased thanks.
Worth every penny, took awhile to arive becuase of the coronies (covid-19) but well worth the wait!!
