Utility Knife has a spear tip that makes it a classic paring knife, perfect for peeling or any small prep work. It is part of a Chefs range and the first we are bringing to Australia. It is made from hard stainless steel (with a higher carbon content) and is taper ground - the unique method that brings its very thin, sharp edge.
The handle is contoured to the edge of the blade with a full tang. The blade is 90mm and handle is plumwood.
But like all good knives, never put this in the dishwasher and a few other points; do not use on hard surfaces, do not lever, turning movements or rocking, to ensure the fine blade is kept in fantastic shape. Handle is made of Cherrywood.
With sharpening, you only need 2-3 passes on a stone, not the usual 10 or more on a cheaper knife.
The knives have effortless cutting ability of Japanese knives, but our German Knives have all the features we love in a blade: an ergonomic, well-balanced handles complements a Japanese-inspired blade without the thick bolster and wide profile that make a Western knife feel unwieldy.
The blades are ground with a specialized oscillating jig that creates a convex surface, the most durable grind, and finished with a microbevel to improve the high-carbon steel’s already impressive edge longevity. These methods have been developed over generations by Windmühlenmesser in Solingen, which is immediately apparent by the masterful fit and finish.
