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 nakiri chef's knife is a traditional Japanese knife ideal for chopping and slicing fruits and vegetables, as well as boneless meats. The edge is double beveled, like a Western knife. Though sometimes called a vegetable cleaver, the thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a Japanese equivalent to meat cleavers. The nakiri chef's knife is a tremendously versatile kitchen tool. Whether slicing onions or julienning carrots, once you try a nakiri, you'll wonder what you ever did without it.
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 has 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 double dyed and stabilized maple burl handle scales to the full tang. The bolster is formed from carbon fiber. The handle 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!
