Great for small chopping, garnishes, and in-hand cutting.

*Please Note: Handles are made using Australian wood burl (roots) so each knife is unique. The images attached are for guiding purposes, so wood grain and resin will vary between individual knives (not the same as the one in the picture).


The Koala (Mini Chopper) Specifications
Blade Length: 
102mm (4") | Over All Length: 232mm (9.25") | Blade Thickness: 2mm (0.078") | Weight: 195g (6.87oz) | HRC: 60-62

VG10 high carbon Japanese steel construction with sandblast finish.

The high carbon content core ensures a razor-sharp cutting edge, clad with stainless steel for protection. Sandblasting the top section of the blade seemed fitting for an Australian knife. From the beaches in Bondi to the dunes on Birdsville, we stand on a sandy country. Practically, this creates a non-stick surface to help glide through vegetables without sticking.

Our wood handles are sourced from the length and breadth of Australia. We fossick for intriguing and symbolic woods for our handles, such as Gidgee from the Simpson Desert which we think pays great homage to the Australian 'Big Red' outback. 

We produce durable, high-quality knives and products for both culinary and utility use.

We stand behind the craftsmanship of our knives with this limited warranty.
