Mert’s work focuses on what makes a knife great.
(steel type, heat treatment and edge geometry)

I am very proud to present another great Australian knife maker!

Mert’s work focuses on what makes a knife great.
In my opinion, people often get too caught up in steel type and not enough emphasis is put on heat treatment and edge geometry.
Mert seems to excel at all of these things.

The handle is a D-shaped Bocote timber with a African Blackwood ferrule.

This knife as a Kuro (black) finish and is iron clad.
This knife will develop a patina with use.
Once a patina has developed the knife will not only have a unique look but a natural protective coating.
“A patina is a natural protective layer on carbon steels that protects the blade from further oxidation”

Non- stainless knives are some of my favorites.
They are almost like living tools that change over time, and tell a story.

“These are carbon, Initially they require bit more wiping but once the patina sets, it’s easy to take care of them”.

*This knife is not a toy. It is extremely sharp. Please use care when using this knife to avoid injury.
*This knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust, also may rust easily if mistreated.
Be careful not to scratch off the black cladding. Once it has gone you can’t get it back!
