Master Shin makes roughly 300+ different designs of knives and farm tools. He uses railroad track, repurposing the carbon steel which is rich in manganese and can be heated to a very high temperature. This steel is hardened, wear-resistant, and good for cutting. The handles are made of chestnut, slowly dried in sunlight for years so it is lightweight, strong, and rot-resistant
Materials: Handle: chestnut or oak wood, shade-dried for years to achieve the correct weight, stability and water resistance. Blade: made from the strong steel used for railroad tracks.
Size: 11.25" (L- including handle); 6.5" L blade; 2" (W)
Care Instructions: Hone before use. Wipe clean with a soft cloth. If liquid is needed to clean, use water only and dry thoroughly to prevent rust.
