The 1803 Kitchen knife is a versatile and practical knife for home cooks and professional cooks alike. With a 15cm sheep-foot blade that has a rounded nose and a wide, flat blade, which is derived from the traditional Japanese ‘Santoku’ style. It is great for slicing, dicing and mincing. As it has an edge that is almost completely straight, this knife cuts boneless meat, cheese, vegetables, herbs and fruit with ease.
The rustic hand-forged carbon steel blade has a full tang through the length of the knife handle to provide superior stability, balance and weight. It is then set between two formed scales of red deer antler and fixed with three small brass nails. Antler feels good in the hand, while also providing additional grip when wet – this is why antler handled knives are preferred by many of the world’s great chefs.
Every 1803 knife is ruggedly handsome, unique and completely traceable from the farm gate; 1803 hand-forged blade collection has rare provenance & represents authentic Australian luxury. As the blade is forged from carbon steel, it will tarnish and patina with time and use – this is part of its inherent beauty.
Every serious cook will enjoy working magic with this beauty. Our kitchen knives are presented in a leather knife wrap. Chop chop!
