     Thank you, the wood isn't stained its just an oil finish. The handle is made of stabilized figured black walnut.

    Modern Chef's knife

    I guess its just a bit hard to convey the ergonomics of the knife when you don't have it in your hands. In use its tip is angles a bit further down with the top of the handle parallel to the cutting surface. I actually prefer to do my slicing the same as yours finishing with the cut on the tip...

    Modern Chef's knife

    The steel is aeb-l, it's a high carbon stainless steel that was originally designed for razors. The handle is stabilized figured walnut, with inset hidden pins. It's not really a full chopper, hence the full belly, but it's got enough chop in it for day to day tasks. I have a santoku as well...
