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. I don't like working with this material much, as it's messy, yet I LOVE the results! This handle is described as having a bronze swirl pattern for the main section along with a black pearl ferrule & end cap. Of the 3 poly handles I've made so far this one is my favorite, the pattern and colors suit my personal tastes well.
The pairing of a stainless steel blade with a poly acrylic handle makes for a low maintenance worry free package.
*NOTE - The handle has 2 small white spots that look out of pattern. I tried to sand them away but they're inside too deep. They do not effect anything but the appearance, I simply wanted to point them out for full disclosure.
