For those who prefer the warmth and feel of a real wood handle. Features proprietary DEXSTEEL™ stain-free, high-carbon steel blade, individually ground to create specially designed scallops forming multiple sharp cutting edges. The points of the scallops easily break through tough rinds and pierce the firm skin of fruits and vegetables and also protect the sharp cutting edges. After breaking through the tough outer surface, the curved scalloped edge slices through soft interiors without damaging them. Natural Walnut handle is secured to the blade with brass compression rivets. Made in USA.
