Made from CPM154 powdered stainless steel to have great edge retention, and ease of sharpening.
Food separation will be good, primarily as a result of the convex grind, and also assisted by a forward balance where weight is retained in the upper section of the blade as much as possible.
The spine, although nicely tapered, retains strength and resists flex yet the tip is thinly ground for making proper cuts as required.
The wa style handle is made from a poly acrylic material. It's a messy material to work with yet I LOVE the results! This handle is described as having a purple pearl swirl pattern for the main section along with a black ferrule & end cap.
The pairing of a stainless steel blade with a poly acrylic handle makes for a low maintenance worry free package.
*Note - some of the pictures give the impression that the handle is blue, this is incorrect, it is purple in person. I tried my best to capture the color accurately but after 3 sets of pictures I've had to settle for these as the best I can provide. Just know that you are buying a purple colored handle - notblue.
