The 33 layers series is made out of 32 layers softer stainless steel (16 | 16) on the outside and has a core of VG10 steel. A comfortable classic western handle, made of red Spanish mahogany, gives this series a clear identity of its own. One of the most comfortable handles in our collection. Large enough for our western hands and ideal in weight. The blade has been adjusted at the choil, close to the bolster, so the knife can be held closer to the balance point during cutting.
