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 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 black G-10 handle scales to the full tang. The bolster is formed from red Lavaflow Fatcarbon with a red spacer. 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 knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
This is a knife you won't want to put down!
