Description

This blade is forged by and heat treated by Nic Westermann, the grinding is done on our small knife jig. The blade is forged from 1/4″ bearing steel rod- this makes fitting a handle very easy and a round tang and also adds rigidity, the blade is 2mm thick at the spine with distal taper towards the tip.

This small sloyd has a compound grind on the flats, this means that the 25 degree edge bevel is very short, allowing the blade to turn in a concave cut very easily, they are excellent for finishing difficult areas of a spoon, especially the neck. The tips are very fine and these blades should not be used for prying to any degree.

As these blades are forged by hand the final thickness does vary, by approx .25mm, this doesn’t sound like a lot but when put in our Jig it means that whilst the edge geometry is identical the point the grind line blends in with the scale from forging will vary so there may be some cosmetic differences between blades, be assured though-  this has no effect on their function.

 

Legal note : This blade can only be sold to customers over the age of 18, appropriate measures are in place to ensure this.

      These blades are currently selling out very quickly but a new batch goes up each week, we normally put a post up on Instagram when we have restocked, so it is worth following us @Hewnandhone

    Hello, are the small sloyds hollow ground for ease of sharpening?

    • Hewn & Hone Team says:

      No these are flat ground, the bevels are so short that any hollow would be lost almost immediately, plus you don’t really want dead flat bevels on a blade designed to turn in the cut.
