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 made 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, Aegean, from the Greek god of storms on the Aegean Sea.
The kiritsuke gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is a general purpose chef's knife. The triangular tip results in a detail oriented, yet stronger tip than the gyuto. It is designed and handcrafted for slicing, dicing, and chopping vegetables and boneless proteins. The tall profile provides plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The long, straight spine is perfect for moving foods across a cutting board after chopping. The kiritsuke gyuto is a perfect general purpose chef's knife to grab whether slicing onions, chopping parsley, or dicing meat.
The 8-3/4" stainless damascus blade was forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This high performing stainless damascus steel is created using powder metallurgical manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The spine and choil are nicely rounded for comfort.
The Japanese-inspired octagonal handle is stabilized and dyed maple burl. This style of handle is extremely comfortable and ambidextrous, allowing both left and right-handed users equal comfort. The front bolster is bronze flake resin.
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!
