BBQ Machete 45cm with Beech Handle
Solsona in Spain is famous for its knife industry, and Pallares founded in 1917 is one of the few remaining family businesses where each knife is sharpened by hand and where every employee is a craftworker.
If you are a fan of BBQ Pit Boys you will be familiar with their Old Hickory Knife. We got our hands on one and we liked it, but we thought there must be a better European knife out there. After trying knife makers in Germany, Sweden, and Switzerland we eventually found this bad boy in Catalonia.
This BBQ/Hunting knife is made using carbon steel. This is a very strong material that can take and hold an extremely sharp edge, but it does take looking after. The handle is very durable hardwood and should last a lifetime. It is an unbelievable 45cm or 13" long and has a rugged carbon steel blade that you can sharpen until it is fit to shave with.
Use it to prep, cut meat, slice brisket, and look like a legend. Take care of it and pass it down the generations.
This knife is made of carbon steel, which unlike stainless steel is easy to hone to a razor sharp edge and will keep its edge much longer. However it needs looking after - it should not be left wet as it will rust. If it is not being used for a while a rub of oil will protect it. Over time a natural and beautiful patina will develop on the blade.
Do not place in dishwasher.
