Carbon Blade and Plum Wood Handle with Brass Rivets
Carbon steel blades are harder, sharper, sharpen easily and retain a sharp edge longer than stainless steel blades. Carbon blades will gain a greyish patina after the first cut when oxidation occurs from contact with water, vegetables and fruit juices - this is normal and harmless. Wash knife between use with soapy water and dry immediately. Do not allow knife to sit in water as it will rust.
