This knife blends old and new. Hand forged wrought iron (used originally to construct an 1870s bridge) with Hitachi blue no.2 core. Blade is forged to shape with a strong distal taper with a hand ground finish.
Handle is 3000-year-old bog oak handle with a modern Elforyn composite spacer accent. The final knife is very thin behind the edge and features a high tip making it well suited for rocking as well as slicing. The blade also has an aggressive distal taper giving it a thin and nimble tip.
Blade is ground with a convex grind and steep distal taper going from .14” at the heel to .04” behind the tip.
Troopah Knives are handmade by Malachi Chou-Green; a young knife maker born and raised in San Francisco who discovered his passion for knife making in middle school and has been developing his craft ever since, we are really happy to introduce his work.
This knife is ground thin and tempered hard, it will not tolerate misuse. Being non-stainless it will pick up a patina with use and will require cleaning and drying directly after use.
