Güde Chef's Knife - Woodworking
Güde Chef's Knife - Woodworking

This knife's unorthodox appearance is much more than just eye-catching design – its innovative form has been developed to make the knife easier, more efficient and safer to handle. If you watch a professional chef at work, you may notice that, rather than using a full-handed grip on the handle of a chef's knife, they typically grasp the faces of the blade between the forefinger and thumb, with the other three fingers wrapped loosely around the handle to steady it.

That grip is the basis for this knife’s unique shape, which is designed to place the hand over the knife's balance point, permitting exceptional control in use. Simply rocking the knife back and forth yields an efficient chopping action, taking advantage of its substantial weight (450g, or just under a pound), pronounced curvature and extended heel to cut quickly with minimal effort.

Produced by a firm that has been forging high-quality knives in Solingen, Germany, for over a century, it is made of a premium high-carbon stainless steel chosen for its excellent resistance to corrosion and its ability to take and hold a keen edge, with a full-tang hardwood handle.

The knife measures 12-1/4" overall, and comes in an elegant presentation box with a 39" x 19" checkered cotton tea towel. A truly superb gift for the serious chef on your list.
