Black Micarta Petty Chef 160mm

Black micarta is cut and contoured to reveal the material's beautiful grain, then fastened with oversized copper pins, to form the hand-hugging Western style handle of this petty chef by Ben Tendick of BRT Bladeworks. Ground from 52100 carbon steel, the 160mm / 6.3" blade features a thin, sharp, toothy edge and stiff, workhorse geometry in a size perfect for every cutting need in any kitchen small or large. Ben's superb kurouchi blade finish contrasts the satin bevels, resulting in his usual balance between simple, elegant design and function-first form.
