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 and old Nowill stamp. The steel pinned beechwood handle is a staple of Sheffield production that has stood the test of time.
These economically made knives have some small imperfections, unfinished edges to handles that might need sanding depending on your preference, slightly irregular edges or small cant to the blade, but, 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.
Carbon steel will develop a patina with use, especially with acidic foods. Special attention is needed to keep from rusting. Do not leave wet. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
