If you are into the handmade knife scene, you may have already of heard of Tansu Knives and Merts work.

Mert's work focuses on what makes a knife great.
(steel type, heat treatment and edge geometry)
Don't believe me? Ask anyone who has used his knives.
Ask them about cutting ease and edge retention.

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.
Don't believe me? ask anyone who has used his knives.
Ask them about cutting ease and edge retention.

The handles are ringed gidgee timber. Ringed gidgee dark brown hardwood. It is also a very heavy timber, and classified as the 3rd hardest wood.

A lot of knives that have a Kuro (black) finish are often soft iron clad. They have no corrosion resistance and may rust easily if mistreated.
This knife is stainless clad but still has a 52100 steel core meaning you get the best of both worlds.

*These knives are not toys. They are extremely sharp. Please use care when using these knives to avoid injury.
*The core steel in this knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust.
Be careful not to scratch off the black cladding. Once it has gone you can’t get it back!
