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 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. At 3.08 inches in height, this knife offers plenty of space for finger clearance when working over a cutting board.
The 6-3/4 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 dyed and stabilized maple burl 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 knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
This is sure to become a kitchen favorite -- you won't want to put down!
