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. This knife was inspired by the Japanese gyuto. Because it has less belly, the knife needs to be listed less during a rocking chop. Whether slicing, chopping, mincing, or dicing, this comfortable knife will do it all. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a 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 59-60 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 polished spine and choil for comfort.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set dyed and stabilized birch burl handle scales to the full tang. The contoured handle 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 knife is sure to become a kitchen favorite!
