$1,102.00

This product is unavailable
This one is something special, Damascus clad 26c3 core with a forged integral, full tang handle. Perfectly balance for a pinch, the integral handle is very comfortable in the hand and although the knife has a very rustic hand finished look, there are no rough edges.
At 323g the knife has a good amount of heft to it and naturally the geometry is more in line with a workhorse than a laser. A little thicker at the spine than a typical Isasmedjan Honyaki or San Mai, but still relatively thin behind the edge. A good cutter with a confident weight and a nice, tapered spine.
The profile has a flat section extending about 30% the length of the blade before developing into a very subtle curve. The handle is angled down giving the knife a very powerful downstroke and taking advantage of that chunky spine thickness above the heel. Its a unique profile that is considerate of the tapered spine and allowing the user to take advantage of both the heavier, thicker heel and more tapered thinner tip.
The stabilised amboyna handles feels very comfortable, smooth, and luxurious. The brass pins are a nice touch that allows the beautiful amboyna burl to really shine. Completing the package is a stunning Saya carved from an amazing piece of Amboyna burl, full of rich red, black and brown hues.
Styling wise the handle and saya are a nice pairing with the stunning Damascus cladding and black, forced patina on the blade. Overall, a design that feels timeless and full of character. A true heirloom piece from our Swedish friend Jonas Johnsson.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
