No kitchen should be without this exceptional tool. It's the most essential of all knives used in the kitchen for slicing, dicing, and mincing. Perfectly balanced, an extension of your hand. This knife measures 16 cm (6") and has a granton edge. This hollow edge creates pockets of air which prevent extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade. Precision forged from a single blank of steel with bolster and full tang.
