A lovely little hand-forged chopper for preparing your fresh herbs and garlic. The blade and handle are forged from a. single piece of 1084 high carbon steel, which then undergoes a “traditional” heat treatment which allows me to both harden and temper the edge in one step whilst keeping the handle unhardened. This is a very satisfying little tool to use. They’re pretty sharp too, so watch your fingers!
These knives are made to order, and may take a little while to complete during busy times. Please contact me if you have a deadline to hit!
- Blade: the blade is 1084 high carbon steel and will rust if not looked after. Thoroughly clean and dry the blade after each use, especially after preparing acidic foods such as citrus fruit or tomatoes. Periodically (or before storage) rub with a food-safe oil such as cooking / olive oil, and wipe off excess.
- Washing: Keep the knife clean and dry – wipe clean and then dry thoroughly immediately after use. Try and avoid detergents. For pity’s sake, don’t put it anywhere near a dishwasher!
