Rosewood Petty 170mm

The 170mm / 6.7" edge of this custom petty chef knife by Matthew Rubendall of Ruby Knives features excellent convex geometry with a full distal taper, culminating in a very usable, needle-like tip, perfect for detail work. A forced vinegar patina which covers the 52100 carbon steel blade is contrasted by a polished, rounded, and comfortable choil and spine. Brazilian Rosewood is shaped to form a simple, rounded and comfortable handle, stopping just short of the choil and designed to provide excellent and easy transition and comfort for use in a pinch-grip. In wenge and spruce woods, the beautiful saya uses a unique, two-piece pin of turned ebony and steel.
