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!
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 features sides forged from damascus, copper and brass. This unique blade material was forged by Dion Damascus in Attleboro, MA. The 80CrV2 carbon steel core is tough, highly chip resistant, and maintains excellent edge holding. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. The spine and choil have been nicely rounded for comfort.
Handle scales are shred carbon fiber, set on the full tang for strength and durability. This beautiful material is extremely elegant. The faceted Western-inspired handle offers a comfortable, ambidextrous grip. The handle is finished with a satin finished stainless steel bolster. This knife is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen!
A custom storage bag with brass buckles and Dikristo's mark is included to safely store the knife.
Exceptional work throughout!
