The Dogtooth’s wharncliffe blade is made for control. The nearly straight cutting edge is easy to guide through material with accuracy, and the fine tip excels in detailed cuts. While this knife is not meant for heavy duty tasks, it makes quick work of everyday ones, like cutting boxes, opening letters, preparing food, removing threads, and much more. Cut with a double-bevel compound grind, the blade offers added strength at the base and precision at the tip. The skeletonized frame not only reduces weight (it’s just 2.2 ounces overall), but showcases the blade when closed. In addition, there’s a choil for ease of sharpening, plus jimping on the spine for grip retention. Shaped like a teardrop, the handle is visually pleasing and comfy to hold.
