My new Slender Integral chef's knives are a minor tweak on the integral knife concept that eliminates the large integral bolster which reduces overall weight, but retains the transitional flow of a forged, integral knife.
The blade is forged from 52100 (ball bearing) steel, ground very thin with a hand rubbed finish. The spacer is ivory G-10 and the handle is stabilized spalted maple. The handle is shaped with a deep hollow (think fuller) running the full length of the handle that gives it a really secure grip.
The knife also comes with a handmade leather blade sleeve.
Blade length 7", overall 13"
