This is a unique and nimble paring knife with a 100mm cutting edge. The blade is made from Nitro-V stainless steel, a premium steel renowned for its fine grain structure and ability to take an extremely keen edge. 

This blade has been heat treated with a cryo cycle to a final tested hardness of 61.5hrc. It has been flat ground with near continuous distal taper to create an extremely fine and sharp cutting edge. The primary bevels have been finished with an 800g satin hand rubbed finish with polished spine and choil for comfort. The edge has been sharped to 4k on whetstones. 

The handle is a western style hidden tang with an elforyn bolster and stunning micro curl Ringed Gidgee.  The handle has been rounded with flats at the pinch grip and sits comfortably in the palm of the hand. The knife also has a hand stitched leather sheath for transport and protection.
