This chef knife with forged blade is full tang and you can see the hammer marks and the indents of forging. The scales are old rosewood and take a mirror like shine. The scales are brass. The bevel is for right handed users. This means that the angle is to the right side of the edge. The left side of the blade is flat. While sharpening start grinding the angled right side first.
It weighs 235 grams. The heavy weight means that you use your arms rather than your wrist. This is optimal for serious cutting board work. Even long periods of work won’t pain your wrists. The curve on the blade means see-saw motion with the tip always on the cutting board is possible. This takes rust very easily and it is recommended to always wipe the blade dry before storage.
