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.
A utility knife is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, with a narrower and straighter blade. This makes it perfect for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller vegetables. Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Utility knives are sometimes called sandwich knives because they work well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes, to meats and cheeses.
The blade is hand ground 14C28N stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 60 Hrc. 14C28N is tough, chip, resistant, highly corrosive resistant, and maintains good edge retention. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish and a nicely rounded spine and choil for comfort.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set G-Carta handle scales to the full tang. The handle is contoured to swell at the palm and is extremely comfortable whether holding the knife in a pinch grip or holding the handle farther back.
This elegant chef's utility knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. It is sure to become a kitchen favorite!
