Blenheim Forge Carbon Steel Slicer
The carving knives we have always wanted. Specially made to our specifications by master bladesmiths Blenheim Forge, this is a limited edition of 5 knives. Each knife features:
- 28cm, full tang blade (there may be +/- 3mm variation in blade length due to hand finishing)
- 3-layer construction with high carbon Blue Paper Steel core, hardened to 62-64 HRC
- Stabilised tiger oak handle
In stock for immediate dispatch, free shipping.
The knife is ground thin, and as such is not suitable for cutting into or through bones. Always use the knife on a wooden or HDPE board - cutting onto glass or stone surfaces will quickly blunt (and potentially damage) the edge.
After use, always wash the knife in a sink with soapy water and dry it immediately - carbon steel rusts if left wet. It is normal (and part of the product's charm) for carbon steel to patinate with time and use. Never put the knife in a dishwasher.
This type of knife will need to be periodically sharpened to maintain its edge. Carbon steel blades are best sharpened with a ceramic whetstone; honing steels are not especially effective. If you are not familiar with caring for this type of knife we suggest a sharpening course at Blenheim Forge.
Store the knife in a safe place - on a knife rack is ideal, floating around in a drawer is not. It comes supplied in a stiff cardboard box which is suitable for storage.
