Black Gold - 6in (150mm) Damascus Petty Culinary Knife

“Black Gold” 6in (150mm) Damascus petty knife. Shadow and light play beautifully off of one another in this KRVR classic blade. The shadow runs through the dark black resin, with its various degrees of translucence. Filling the void of the resin is gold leaf flake, offering color, texture, and light to the dynamic picture. The crevices of the flakes reflect the light with different intensities. Some of the flakes creep to the surface, while others are just barely visible within the mist. Includes sleek walnut saya shown.

The blade is made from VG10 core hardened to 60 HRC. Multiple layers of stainless are forged on both sides of the blade that protect the core and result in the damascus layer pattern. VG10 is a high hardness stainless that doesn’t require the maintenance or care of a carbon steel. VG10 blades should be sharpened with a water stone, synthetic stone, or diamond. Do not use a honing steel on this blade. The edge angle is sharpened to 17 degrees and then stropped to a super sharp finish. The blade is 6” (150 mm) long, with a convex surface grind.⠀
