Carving knives don't come much sexier than this. Imagine your Mum's face when you pull this one out at the next sunday dinner. Awe inspiring.
Carving knives should be super sharp, have a thin blade to reduce drag, a long length so you have to do fewer cuts per slice and a firm handle so you don't drop it. This knife ticks all the boxes and looks cool as hell while doing it.

Our aim is to measure and photograph all our products as accurately as possible but due to the handmade nature of many items, please be aware that there may be some variance in the measurements and that things such as blade and knife handle patterns can vary and presentation boxes may differ from those shown but we will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
