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 high performing 14c28N stainless steel. This Sandvik stainless steel was specifically developed as a blade steel. It is a very fine grained alloy, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. At Hrc 61, it offers a good combination of corrosion resistance, edge stability, wear resistance, and strength. 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 hand contoured dyed and stabilized masur birch. 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.
