Make sure you are aware of the care required for carbon steels (it’s straight-forward, just wipe it after cutting something, hand wash, and wipe dry before storing. It will get a patina through normal use). This one has a black patina, and will develop more patina on top of it. Do not use scotchbrite or other abrasive materials on the blade as that will scuff up the finish.
