Dread the Reaper - 6in (150mm) Damascus Petty Culinary Knife

“Dread the Reaper” 6in (150mm) Damascus petty knife. Locked inside a sturdy wa-style, polyurethane resin handle, an icy skull screams out into the void. Variegated copperleaf flake, tinged with the grim darkness and dread of impending doom, piles on top of him.

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.⠀
