This is a new size knife for me. I think it will be a popular one for just about every kitchen. I am calling it a Petite French Knife because that is exactly what it is.
Forged to shape 1095 with a subtle etch and some very dark desert ironwood. OAl is 11.25" and the blade is 6.25"
This was made for my brother in law who bought an anvil and forge from me but never used them & traded them in on a knife. I think it came out great. I really made it with the whole family in mind. For his wife and young children who will soon be getting to the age to help in the kitchen; this will be the perfect knife for them to learn to cook with.
Enjoy the images.
