005 - Kom-Kom five inch knife with special blade and hardwood handle.
This five inch knife has a high carbon stainless steel blade with a hardwood handle.
The blade is made from Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel (SUS420J2) which has been hardened and tempered for sharpness. The handle is made from untreated ironwood hardwood and is secured with brass rivets.
As the handle wood is untreated, it will benefit from the occasional application of a food grade oil to maintain the health of the wood, avoiding shrinkage and keeping the handle looking like new. See the "knife care" tab for details.
This knife is also available as part of a set of 3 knives in the Kom-Kom (B) set.
