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 high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The blade is hand ground 14C28N stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 60 Hrc. 14C28N is tough, chip, resistant, highly corrosive resistant, and maintains good edge retention. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish and a nicely rounded spine and choil for comfort.
The handle is stabilized and dyed masur birch, secured to the full tang with two stainless hidden bolt rivets. The contoured handle feels extremely comfortable and will hold up well to the hard demands of the professional kitchen. The handle is finished with a polished 304 stainless steel bolster. Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
