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 boning/fillet knife designed by Hoehler is the perfect companion whether filleting up some freshly caught fish, slicing up rib cutlets into steaks, or even deboning a chicken or pork. The blade is still tall enough to be able to be used over a cutting board for general tasks or slicing meat against a fork. This is a must-have knife for any serious kitchen!
The 7-1/4 inch blade is hand ground 14C28N stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 59-60 Hrc. This provides the perfect compromise between long edge retention and a slight flexibility for getting into more delicate areas such as when removing pin bones from fish. 14C28N is tough, chip, resistant, highly corrosive resistant, and has good edge retention. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish and a nicely rounded spine and choil for comfort.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set dyed and stabilized masur birch handle scales to the full tang. 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!
