This kitchen knife is forged on a historical hammer by the traditional technique of free hand forging. The form of the knife is especially made for the possibilities of the hammer and is also intended as a statement of the bladesmithing trade in general and flat-forging in particular, which is a nearly forgotten trade. The blade is made of high carbon steel with a hardness of 60 / 61 Rockwell has a great density and is characterized by durability and excellent edge-holding properties. The highly curved handle conditions easy use and handiness.

In a world of modern design, it's refreshing to see something that looks rooted in history. Objects with feeling add value and heart.
