Description: This exceptional chef's utility knife is the work of Argentinian knifemaker Pablo Untroib. Pablo lives in Buenos Aires. He specializes in knives for professional and amateur cooks as well as making outdoor knives.
Utility knives are perfect for slicing produce, meats, and fish – an ideal general purpose knife for detailed slicing in the kitchen. Untroib designed this Parrillero utility to be perfect for slicing grilled meats. Argentina, his homeland, is famed for their BBQs. Whether slicing the meat as it comes off the grill or used as a steak knife, this hard, thin slicer is a time proven design from the country where every home has a BBQ. Smaller than a chef's knife, but bigger than a paring knife, you'll find this utility knife is so useful that it may become your goto knife in the kitchen.
The blade is formed from O2 carbon steel. At Hrc 60, it will have a keen, long lasting edge. An elegant forced patina provides limited rust resistance and helps you get comfortable working with carbon steels. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. The blade has a perfect arc for a rocking chop.
Lapacho (Handroanthus spp.) wood handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. They are seated with three hidden bolt rivets. The domed handle is nicely contoured so that it fits most hands.
The knife is accompanied by a veg tanned leather sheath by Pancho Elizalde.
This is an exceptionally light, very well balanced chef's utility knife that can be used for hours without fatigue. It is a perfect choice for both home and commercial chefs.
