Fallkniven K1 Blue Whale 8in. Chef's Knife
With this knife a new world standard was set. For the very first time an expensive high-end steel is used in serial production of advanced chefs knives. The benefit of using a special steel is that the blade can be made thinner, lighter and more rigid and this makes your kitchen work easier and more fun. The new laminate VG10 special steel will make the edge last much longer and this is of course a particular advantage for professionals.
We have paid extra attention to the shape of the handle - the grip must fill the hand without being clumsy while offering a shape that you ensures a safety when working with the knife. We achieve this by making the handle of tacky Thermorun rubber - the better the grip is, the less fatiguing for your hands. On top of that, the handle is easy to keep clean as it has no grooves or dents. The hygienic aspect is an important detail for those who work with food in restaurants and eateries - not the least for their guests.
The tang runs through the handle at almost full width, which gives both stability and rigidity for the knife.
We regard the K1 and K2 knives as the most advanced chef´s knives in the world and we invite you to treat yourself to this everyday luxury. However, please note that none of these knives are adapted for cutting frozen food, nor chopping bones, this will inevitably result in a broken or bent edge. For such heavy tasks we advise you to use a saw or a cleaver. And finally, the best working base is a cutting board made of wood - they are also more hygienic than plastic.
The K1 is a modern, ergonomically designed kitchen knife for the professional chef. The broad blade offers a stiffness and rigidity which make the knife perfect for delicate tasks. Also, the shape of the edge allows it to cut in both directions.
- Blade Detail: Plain Edge
- Blade Length (inches): 8.00
