The knife and fork in this high-end carving set are forged from the finest quality Sheffield steel from England. The handles are turned from a beautiful piece of maple burl, laminated together with strips of black cherry and dyed veneer to form rectangular turning blanks. Working without a pattern, Ted turns the handles so that they match in size and shape.
Knife Dimensions: 14″ overall with a 9″ blade, 1-1/8″ diameter handle.
Fork Dimensions: 11-1/4″ overall with a 6-1/8″ fork, 1-1/8″ diameter handle.
Note: Sheffield steel sharpens to an exceptionally fine edge. For safely in packing and shipping, the knife has not been honed (sharpened). This is easy to do with a sharpening stone, steel, or diamond sharpener.
Use and Care Instructions: To ensure a long and useful life, do not put in a dishwasher or immerse in water. Hand wash with soap and water, using a soft cloth, and dry thoroughly with a soft towel.
