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.
The Serbian cleaver is a style of general purpose chef's knife that has been gaining in popularity over the last couple of years. Designed as a combination of a Japanese santoku and a Chinese cleaver, the Serbian cleaver is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion, but offers plenty of height over the cutting board for years to come.
The 6-1/2 inch blade is hand ground 14C28N stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 59-60 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 stabilized weru burl (albizia procera) to the full tang. The bolster is satin finished stainless steel. The handle is contoured to swell at the palm and is extremely comfortable wheather 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!
