The No.8 is the most popular, most practical size; measuring 8.5cm (blade length) with a stainless steel blade and safety cuff. The chic black Ebony handle is a dense African timber with a smooth feel. The blade is double polished for a stylish mirror effect. 

 

Ebony is a rare and luxurious wood coming from the forests of Africa. Thanks to its beautiful density and deep black color, ebony is traditionally used in marquetry. To get a velvet touch, a specific wax is applied manually on each handle.
