No reviews

“Cicadian Rhythm” 6in (150mm) Damascus petty knife. The Song of the South cannot be written without an hommage to the ethereal sounds of this ubiquitous bug. If you're from the South then you know what I mean. This handle features the shed husk of a red-eyed cicada. The clear resin casing magnifies the amazing detail and color of this magnificent creature, while the shredded cash that hangs toward the top of the wa-style handle pays a nod to some cicada-based millionaire rumors from a few years back. You can Google that. This knife is perfect for truly Southern chefs or entomologist chefs from anywhere.

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.⠀
