Feather damascus 140 Petty
So many little details are to be discovered in this compact little 140 Petty. The feather pattern on the blade is a quite unique damascus pattern tha is rarely found in kitchen knives. The damascus has been etched for a bit of dept and a lot of contrast, for this bold look.
As a variation to the traditional Japanese octagonal Wa handles, this handle has some curves added to it. The handle has a sginificant taper towards the front, making it perfect for a pinch grip. A beautiful piece of dyed stablized curly mango wood forms the basis of the handle, paired with a stainless steel spacer.
The blade has been ground into a thin edge, with a deep S-grind for excellent cutting performance and foodrelease.. This does mean, however, that the knife is not suitable for heavy chopping into bones, joints etc. Furthermore, the carbon steel requires a bit of extra maintenance to prevent rusting.
