THE SMALL CHEF´S KNIFE - K2 - NON-STAINLESS - SPECIAL FEATURE HRC 60
"K2" - the small chef's knife with high demand.
This knife has excellent cutting abilities with its 120 mm long blade with a slight curve , because the blade is similar to a large kitchen knife. At the same time it is very easy to handle because of the significantly smaller size.
It is suitable for all work on the board. Whether it is vegetable or meat, the small chef's knife slices through it smooth and accurate.
The broad blade is made of unusual, high-quality carbon steel, not less than 1% carbon proportion, not stainless, blaugepliesstet, hardened of 60 HRC (Rockwell-hardness grade). The European hardness is 54-56 HRC. Due to the higher hardness the blade has a longer edge holding ability and also still a relative elasticity. This toughness requires a sensitive approach: tilt, turn, or lever damages the knife. The handle is made of fine plum wood, shaped, oval, polished.
