Robert Herder - "K Chef"

  • £235.00

Description

 

The K Chef is Windmühlenmessers extra large chef knife, ideally suited to industry professionals and keen amateurs!


Best used for


– cutting on a chopping board

– chopping, slicing, dicing

– fish and meat


Inspired by the double bevel knives of Japan, the K Series are high performance knives, designed for professional use but equally useful to the discerning home cook.


The utilisation of a traditional technique known as “dry-fine grinding”, ensures these knives are not only razor sharp but also thin behind the cutting edge, when coupled with an already thin and slightly concave blade (great for food release) this makes for a knife which performs to an exceptionally high standard.


We really like this series , they’re comfortable, well made, attractive, hold a mean edge and they sharpen up a treat.

A note on carbon steel - Like many others we at Community Cutlery favour carbon over stainless steel for its ability to take a keener edge and hold it for longer, for this privilege we need to care for our carbon products with a little more consideration, particularly when it comes to washing. Once you’ve finished with your knife we recommend giving it a wash and a thorough dry, as if left wet it will start to rust, surprisingly quickly. If this does happen then take a dry scourer and lightly give it a rub, another rinse and a good dry, it should come off with relative ease. With use you will also notice a light change in the colour of the blade, this patina is natural, beautiful and to be cherished, it’s like yo knife developing its own fingerprint!


 And for many reasons - Never put your knives in the dishwasher


Knives are only available to persons over 18 years of age. Due to the nature of our business ALL customers will be asked to prove their age at checkout.
