Description

What kind of knife is this?

The classic vegetable knife. Highly functional for processing large amounts of vegetables and preforming finer cutting tasks such as julienne of brunoise. The absence of a pronounced belly in the profile orientates it more towards chopping style cutting motions rather than rolling cuts. 

Care Instructions

This is a Semi stainless steel knife. Semi stainless is in between carbon steel and stainless steel, not enough chromium content to be fully stainless but much less fast in oxidising than carbon steel. You can expect semi stainless to be easier in use than carbon, it will oxidise but in a more controlled way than carbon steel. It will in most cases sharpen easier than stainless and responds better to touch ups. It is however still important to store your knife dry and clean, wipe it dry now and again when using, never let it air-dry after washing, no dishwasher and avoid extremely hard products like frozen foods or bones ect.
