This knife was returned to us very gently used, it was out of the shop for about 6 days before coming back and has no damage. The handle is slightly rougher than when brand new but it has been refurbished and feels great in the hand. It's been marked down in price to reflect it's current state. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about it.

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
