Each knife in the Alpha Olive Series begins as a single piece of specially alloyed Chrome-Vanadium-Moly knife steel, beginning with hand forging then subjected to more than forty separate steps in the production process before completion. The handle is made of 100-200 years old, selected olive wood, which is hard, resistant to weathering, rich grained and elegant. Ice hardened stainless steel; hand sharpened. The handle is not dishwasher safe!
