Description: South African knifemaker David Hoehler specializes in chef's knives. Given that he worked in some of the best kitchens in South Africa for nine years, it is no surprise that he brings a unique understanding the chef's primary tool.
This is the place to start your knife set. This custom chef's knife by David Hoehler is a perfect 'go to' knife. It's used for all-around food preparation. Inspired by the Japanese santoku, it has less curve than a Western chef's knife, which means it contacts the cutting board along more of its length, so more food is cut per slice. The santoku has a gentle roll off the tip compared to the large roll of a Western style knife, so it needs to be lifted less, making cutting more efficient. Once you try one of Hoehler's knives, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
The 6-2/3 inch blade is made from high performing N690 stainless steel. N690 is made by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is meticulously flat ground for precise slicing and has a razor sharp edge. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality to the knife.
The handle is formed from wild olive wood burl and acrylic resin. The combination is absolutely beautiful. Stainless steel hidden bolt rivets the handle scales to the full tang. The front of the handle is sealed with a stainless steel bolster. This elegant knife will hold up well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
Exceptional work throughout! This is a knife you'll have a hard time putting down.
