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 BBQ Knife was designed by Hoehler to be the perfect barbequing companion. The long slender blade is perfect for slicing large cuts of meat and will be excellent to work with whether slicing over a cutting board or against a fork. The knife has plenty of clearance to be able to be used as a general purpose chef knife as well and will excel when used with push style cuts. The BBQ Knife is the primary knife used for Braai in South Africa and will be a favorite beside your grill.
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.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set stabilized weru burl handle scales to the full tang. The bolster is polished 304 stainless steel. The handle is contoured to swell at the palm and is extremely comfortable whether 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!
