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 high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited as a general purpose chef's knife. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The 8-1/4 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 premium dyed and stabilized maple burl. Thin red G-10 spacers set between the handle scales and full tang assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set the scales to the full tang. This elegant knife will hold up exceptionally 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.
