Description: The chef's knife is the primary knife used in the kitchen, easily handling almost all culinary tasks. This chef's knife by Dale Miller is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to its versatility. The tall profile provides plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board -- even for those with larger hands. Whether slicing, chopping or dicing, this chef's knife is sure to be a favorite in your kitchen!
The blade features a fiver layer construction. A central core of high performing 26C3 carbon steel hardened to 65 Hrc. This Uddeholm carbon steel is a high carbon, low alloy steel well suited for fine cutting knives. Sometimes called 'Spicy White', this very clean steel is relatively similar to Hitachi White. The core is surrounded by a layer of pure nickel and 1045 carbon steel cladding hardened to 56 Hrc. This ensures the extremely hard blade still has good durability. The blade is ground extremely thin and will create fine, high performance cuts.
Rare black sheephorn handle scales are set on the full tang using hand domed silicon bronze pins. The natural texture of the horn provides a slip-resistant grip, even when hands are wet! The scales are heirloom fit to polished silicon bronze bolsters. This is sure to be a favorite in the kitchen! Like other knives, this knife should not be put in the dishwasher.
Excellent work throughout!
