Description: The love for gastronomy, quality and construction mixes together in a somewhat magical way to give Stelios Christos Drakopoulos (also known as Dikristo) a life purpose: one of the first 100% Greek handmade chef's knives. This exquisite Dikristo chef's knife was handmade by Drakopoulos Stelios. A native of Athens Greece, Stelios was born in 1983. He is a home cook, food lover, and knifemaker. We were extremely impressed with this latest batch of knives from him! This chef's knife gets its name, Lyssa, from the spirit of frenzy.
The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is an exceptional general purpose chef's knife. It is perfect for slicing meats and proteins as well as chopping and dicing. Whether slicing onions, chopping vegetables, or portioning meats, this will be your go-to knife.
The san mai blade is tremendously high performing, with an extremely keen edge. Stainless steel surrounds the Aogami Super carbon steel core to provide easier maintenance and care. The top of the blade is forge finished. The blade is extremely thin for high performance slicing and chopping.
The Japanese-inspired octagonal handle is stabilized maple burl. This style of handle is extremely comfortable and ambidextrous, allowing both left and right-handed users equal comfort. The swirling figure of the wood is extremely engaging. A blackened titanium bolster and polished stainless steel spacer complete the handle.
This chef's knife has exceptional balance. It is nimble and easy to use. It is sure to become a kitchen favorite.
A custom storage bag with brass buckles and Dikristo's mark is included to safely store the knife.
Excellent work throughout!
