Sujihiki 320mm "Denty" Blackout Fluted Moose Antler with Silver Inlays
A combination of titanium, moose ivory and sterling silver make up what can only be described as a singular piece of artistry from Austrian Blacksmith Benjamin Kamon. Carved by hand the removable grip is fluted and features sterling silver inlays and blackened titanium endcaps.
The level of precision in the blade is close enough to prefect. Every curve, angle and bevel are precision ground by hand to produce one of the finest cutting tools on the planet. A beautifully textured and acid etched finish completes the blade from a stylistic point of view.
The combination of blade and handle is a uniquely contemporary and classic piece, rich with modern textures, and aggressive lines along old-world inspired details. This beautiful piece of epicurean art comes with a black paper micarta presentation stand.
An absolute one-of-a-kind piece from artisan bladesmith Benjamin Kamon.

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.
