Collection: Alpha Barrel Oak

Similar to other knives in the Alpha series, the blade of the Alpha barrel oak series is crafted by hand from a single piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum knife steel. It requires over 40 additional manual steps to create a distinct Solingen knifemaking masterpiece. These knives have wooden handles and therefore should not be washed in the dishwasher. The blade is rust-resistant, hardened using an ice-hardening process, and is sharpened by hand.  In over 40 further manual operations by hand, it becomes a unique piece of Solingen knifemaking art. The handle scales made of finely textured, barrel oak wood should not be put in the dishwasher. The blade is stainless, ice-hardened and of course hand-sharpened.
