Purple Reign - 6in (150mm) Damascus Petty Culinary Knife

“Purple Reign” 6in (150mm) Damascus petty knife. A regal combination of violet resin and gold leaf flake dance and mingle within this strong poly resin handle. Purple is the color of royalty, and be you Queen or King, this tool can be your scepter in the kitchen. Waves of influence among the court ripple outward from the beachfront Damascus blade and into every dish you make. 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.⠀
