Bocote Integral Paring Knife 100mm

A classically designed and beautifully executed integral damascus chef's paring knife from bladesmith Nick Anger. Forged at his Northern Vermont studio, the pattern welded steel is formed from 1080 & 15n20 carbon alloys, strong, stiff, and of course very sharp throughout the length of the 100mm / 3.9" edge. Slim and versatile in profile, the blade retains ample strength right up to the tip for tougher work while being crafted for all manner of precise and detail-oriented cuts and handheld work above the board as well. The sculpted integral bolster that presents a different perspective on the damascus pattern, continues into a ring of black micarta, and then a comfortable, hand-filling piece of striking bocote wood.
