Every knife has been forged from a solid bar of steel. There are no welded sections like you find in many production knives.  

The custom pattern was created in Japan by an 8th generation bladesmith to our own Salter Fine Cutlery proprietary design. He made the blade using time-honored traditional Japanese forging methods.

The knife is offered as knife only.
