Note: none of my knives is mass-produced.
As they are all completely handcrafted without the use of any hi-tech machinery please bear in mind that experience and skill do not necessarily rule out slight imperfections. However, any small defect you might encounter should be considered as the trademark of a unique, custom-made knife, which reflects the difference in the raw materials used (such as wood grains, etc.). I don’t sell knives with defects that alter their performances or durability.
