Our Mushroom knife is a perfect tool for outdoor people who are not necessarily hunting or hiking overnight. It has small carbon steel blade which is sharpened from the straight side. This steel is same than in our other knives so it cuts mushroom sharply without damaging its construction. The handle is made from Finnish curly birch and it has a brush on the top of it. Brush is made of horse hair, from local horse stables. It is collected during natural care, brushing and cutting tails and mane. Brush may be shortened with scissors if you like shorter and stiffer brush to clean your mushrooms. Carbon steel blade must be cleaned and dried after every use and recommended is to apply some cooking oil to it. It needs attention but rewards you with service for decades.
