Made from CPM154 powdered stainless steel to have great edge retention, ease of sharpening, and low maintenance requirements.
Food separation will be good, primarily as a result of the (thin) convex grind towards the edge, 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 score cuts as required.
The octagonal wa style handle is full sized (see above dimensions) made from a blue dyed maple burl for the main section paired with a black paper micarta ferrule. I can see this handle appealing to a person who likes some color in their life but not so in your face. It has a sort of deep space look to it, yet simple.
