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 of the chef’s primary tool.
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 maple burl scales to the full tang. The bolster is formed from 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 a commercial kitchen.
This is a knife you won’t want to put down!
