Petty/Vegetable - Stabilised Natural Poplar Burl and Micarta
A medium sized, general purpose knife for the kitchen. With a generous, rounded handle, a rounded spine and finger guard/choil - this knife can be used all day. This functional kitchen tool has carbon fibre pins and a tough-as-nails black Micarta bolster up front. The main part of the handle is in beautifully burled Poplar wood that has been stabilized. The stabilizing process impregnates the wood with an extremely durable resin - this makes the wood virtually impervious warping or cracking, water resistant and a lot more hard-wearing than natural wood. It has a fine geometry from spine to edge and is sharpened to 17 degrees at the edge. Perfect for folks who prefer lighter knives.
