It's a full sized suji coming in at 300mm in cutting edge length made from one of the best steels used in the cutlery industry today - 52100 high carbon ball bearing steel.
This knife will have great edge retention and ease of sharpening. The blade will take on some really interesting colors and patterns of patina as it's used.
The spine is nicely tapered, retains strength, and resists flex. The tip is thinly ground in the popular k-tip style.
The handle on this knife is really something! Made by James of Knives and Stones (out of Australia) it's constructed on some incredible two-toned amboyna burl with triple (!) nickel silver spacers and a blond buffalo horn ferrule and end cap. I love how he aligned the wood for maximum effect.
No matter how nice this handle looks in the pictures it's even better in person. James did a fantastic job on this ultra-premium handle and I'm more than pleased to be able to pair it up with one of my knives.
