David Mellor Provençal chef's knife 18cm
Designer Corin Mellor's interpretation of the traditional fully forged professional chef's knife, appealing to those who take good cooking seriously.
The stainless steel tang running right through the handle and the large stainless rivets give these knives their special visual quality.
These knives exploit the latest techniques in manufacturing. The high carbon stainless steel blades are hot drop forged and then ice hardened to minus 80°c, producing an exceptionally sharp, hard and durable blade. Blades are then taper ground. Handles are acetal resin. These knives are not only technically excellent, they are especially well balanced and comfortable in the hand.
This all-purpose Chef’s Knife is the ultimate kitchen tool. Used by professionals it can handle a huge variety of tasks, from finely chopping herbs and nuts to meat preparation and precisely cutting vegetables, including hard vegetables such as squash. The strong deep blade is curved towards the tip making it perfect for chopping using a rocking technique.
All knives are supplied in individual David Mellor boxes.
