This knife is hand-crafted with care in Canada using high carbon O1 steel, Canadian curly maple and solid brass. The high carbon steel was chosen for this knife because of it’s superior strength, rigidity and long lasting blade edge. Because the RNC knife is not made from stainless steel it will develop a healthy amount of character (known as a patina) as you use it over time, this is a natural occurrence and will protect the blade.
With a little care, this will be the only kitchen knife you’ll ever need.
These knives are made to be raw and natural with wood and steel. Because we don’t use stainless steel or plastics, this knife will require a bit of attention to keep it in great shape. This knife should never be put in the dishwasher. After use, please hand wash with a bit of soap and be sure to rinse and dry immediately after. It is recommended that you rub a little cooking or mineral oil on the blade when not in use and hone after every 3 or 4 uses, keeping the blade clean and sharp.
