Famous for its sharpness and durability all around the world, Sürmene knife is also a cultural brand.However, the most famous type among these knives is the Sürmene grooved wedge. The handle of this wedge is made of horn. The knife craftsman shapes the heated horn and engraves it with silver. Then he puts on the 22 cm long tip made of forged steel and creates a beautiful knife.

The knife craftsman also makes a sheath for this of which the outer part is made of calf leather and the inner chamber is alder wood. Finally, it becomes ready for introduction to the market.
