Description: Arno Bernard Sr. is a maker from South Africa and has been making knives for over 35 years. He has been a member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) for over 20 years. Living in South Africa has allowed him the luxury of using many different exotic handle materials -- some even collected himself.
A utility knife is a great compromise between a chef's knife and a paring knife. This makes it perfect for a multitude of small tasks where 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.
This Utility Knife is Bohler N690 stainless steel. N690 is created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is satin finished in the grinds and polished in the flats. The blade has been hollow ground to a thin, high performance edge. The spine has been rounded for a comfortable grip.
The handle is brown G-10 set to the full tang using three stainless steel pins. The knife is very lightweight and comfortable to hold making it perfect for use in the kitchen. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Nice work throughout!
