Hey Lumberjocks
This 8” chef’s knife is high carbon steel, not stainless steel like most knives. It will sharpen easier and stay sharp longer, just takes some extra care. The high carbon steel is from France and the knife was made by Hoch Tools from Ft Bragg Ca. I added the wooden scales and copper pins. The wood is extremely hard and is likely from South America, certainly not a domestic wood. The copper pins contrast nicely with the hardwood.
Thanks for checking out the steel chef’s knife.

Real nice! Do you have to oil it after washing and drying?

Thx guys, No real need to oil but just requires a little more attention. Important to remove all water from the knife when finished using and cleaning.

Chef’s knives are usually flat ground but that appears to be a Scandinavian grind. Nice looking knife but not sure how you would use that in the kitchen.
