Made in Sheffield England along an old English pattern we were excited to find this style of knife still in production, especially with the old style carbon steel blade

English style chef knives have a subtle but once you know it distinctive design; a triangular blade with a flat heel, (sometimes a nearly parallel spine and edge) and a saber shaped handle with small pointed birds head pommel.

These economically made knives have some small imperfections, slightly irregular edges or small cant to the blade, they are great work horses and great for history buffs.

These are not stainless and need extra care to keep from rusting, that said they sharpen easily and hold a steeled edge nicely.

This is a carbon steel knife. Carbon steel is expected to develop a dark patina with use. It needs to be hand washed and towel dried soon after use. Do not air dry. Do not put it in the dishwasher. Long exposure to moisture and debris will result in rust. Any rust development should be removed with a light abrasive.

Use on a quality wooden cutting board will help the knife stay sharper for longer. Use on hard surfaces like plates and bamboo will reduce the edge life and can result in edge damage.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most western knives perform best with a medium finish starting around 1000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Steel honing rods work well with this knife.
