Description: This is the first wharncliffe kwaiken Anders has made, and I hope it won't be the last! The Nordic style handle is perfectly suited to the shape of the blade. The cutting edge is clay tempered with a traditional Japanese process that results in hard-wearing blades with resilient spines and strong, hardened edges. The handle and bolster flare just a bit on the top to provide a thumb ramp for a more comfortable grip.
