A backbone of western cook ing tradition, the carving knife is one of the most popular knives in most European homes. Used for the carving of large joints of meat at special occasions and in the kitchen. The long sharp blade enables long, smooth cutting strokes for beautiful presentation. The carving knife is 20cm long making it the optimum size for carving all types of joints. The Western olive wood range comes gift boxed with a brown leather sheath that offers the perfect protection for your knife, protecting yourself and others from its supremely sharp edge. The blade has a 67 layers of VG-10 Damascus steel, the highest quality steel with a high carbon content that gives it exceptional toughness. The exquisite craftmanship in these knives can be seen in the elegant layered damascus pattern on the blade. The blade is finished with an olive wood handle which strikes a balance between opulence and hard wearing-durability.
