* Our knives are hand-crafted with natural materials like timber, small variation to size and colour may occur. The black finish may change over time due to friction and scratching, both knives are high carbon and will change colour (patina) in use.
* Non stainless steel knives require a small amount of care to prevent surface rust. They are however, sharper and easier to sharpen.
