Pallares 11" Fishmonger Knife. Stainless steel blade with turned boxwood handle. Handmade in Solsona, Spain. No Dishwasher.
Founded in 1917 in Solsona, Spain by two brothers, and currently run by the third generation of the family, Pallares is the last surviving workshop in an area one-time famous (since the 1600’s) for its knife making workshops. Pallares strives to use traditional, high quality materials and have always been known for well tempered steel. Their knives are completely hand ground and assembled and have wonderful cutting feel and good edge retention.
Please note, these can have cosmetic scratches or small imperfections in handles which will not impede the performance of the knife. This is par for the course on these knives and is part of how they sell them for a very reasonable price.
Stainless steel is durable and resistant to rust and patina, but maintain with care. Hand wash & dry, no dishwasher. Hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain cutting boards are preferred; avoid bamboo and plastic cutting boards.
