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 chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited as a general purpose chef's knife. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The 8-1/2 inch blade features a VG-10 premium stainless steel core (hagane). This is surrounded by many layers of high contrast damascus. This time consuming process creates a knife with outstanding edge holding and beauty, without the brittleness of many other high performing steels. The spine and choil are nicely rounded to provide a comfortable grip.
Hand contoured Arizona desert ironwood handle scales are set on the full tang. The scales are elegantly fit to a polished stainless steel bolster. This knife is absolutely perfect for the professional chef or home cook connoisseur!
Exceptional work throughout!
