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 fillet knife is sure to become a 'goto' knife -- both in the kitchen and when out fishing. This beautiful knife is the right tool for two key tasks — boning and filleting. When boning, the narrow, sharp blade gets in close to the bone, making it easy to separate meat from bone. The extremely sharp edge even cuts through fibrous material with ease. It’s perfect for trimming the silverskin from a tenderloin or even making your own cutlets. The narrow blade reduces drag as you cut against the meat, so cutting is fast and easy. When it comes to filleting fish, the blade's 7 inch length is just right to glide through the body of the fish, quickly removing bones and skin. The knife has a semi-flex making filleting a breeze.
The 7 inch blade is made from high performing N690 stainless steel. N690 is made by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is meticulously flat ground for precise slicing and has a razor sharp edge. The spine has been nicely rounded for comfort. The distal tapered blade provides perfect balance.
Handle scales are formed from black G-10 and set on a full tang for strength and durability. The front of the handle scales are sealed with a 304 stainless steel bolster to prevent food particles from getting into the tang. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
This fillet knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath, making it easy to keep close at hand and well as protect it while on the move.
Excellent work throughout!
