As anyone who has ever encountered Inigo Montoya can tell you, a Spaniard knows his way around a steel blade. These exquisite carbon steel knives are hand-forged and honed in a 100+ year old workshop in Solsona, Spain, in the same manner than they have been for over 400 years, tempered with blessings to Saint Eligius, the patron saint of knife makers.

The 12cm (roughly 4 3/4") blade is a slightly longer than your average paring knife, making it an ideal utility knife, particularly well suited for breaking down meat. The pointed blade shape, like all good things, is a matter of personal preference, but it makes for ultra-precise cuts (and a rakish aspect).

Since they are forged from a purer alloy than their stainless steel counterparts, carbon steel knives are considered slightly more "delicate". While it is certainly possible for these knives to chip if you throw them at a magicians assistant or into the dishwasher, and, if neglected, they can stain or rust, the beauty of these knives actually lives in that delicacy. These blades demand respect and, if they're afforded the respect they deserve, they will remain more subtly beautiful, easier to hone, slower to dull, and deadly sharp for generationsā€”plenty of time to search for the Six Fingered Man.
