The Kiritsuke Demi-Chef
The Demi chef is the most popular kitchen knife of the professional chef.
It is smaller and lighter than its big brother "Gyuto", which makes it very pleasant to use as your primary kitchen knife. The geometry of this knife is one of the most important aspects!
After a thorough study of the tool and their users, I noticed that this knife needed a high heel and a sharp point, in contrast to the current standard that has a relatively flat profile that suddenly goes in an arc to point - as with the French chef's knives.
Instead, I wanted to create a more gradual curve to the point. This curved curve makes this knife a dream to cut with. It just fluctuates from point to heel! As master of this knife, all you have to do is put your delicious food underneath!
The fresh ingredients that you cut with this knife don't even have time to lose juice. You can finally process your food with surgical precision. Make slices, cubes and juliennes like never before: the Demi-Chef from MKnives puts your blender back in its box ready for never being used again. ;-)
Special about the Demi-Chef?
This Demi-Chef is not just a Demi-Chef, but one with a "Kiritsuke" finish. This can be recognized by the typical diagonally cut point, which is also called a K-tip. Thanks to the K-tip you not only have the cool looks with you, but it also makes fine work easier: such as when cutting a brunoise you can make precise cuts with the finer tip. The Bunka Santoku comes with free annual maintenance and lifetime Guarantee!
SC125 is steel produced by master smith Achim Wirthz. He wanted to show the world that it was not necessary to have Japanese steel in your kitchen knife to have a good knife, because - without many knowing this - we have been masters of steelmaking here in Europe for centuries. Together with Achim, I hope to show that you can even have world-class knives in Belgium.
Special to the blade?
Personally I think the SC125 is special in itself. But because I don't want to make knives, but "the chef's best friend," I thought it was necessary to add another "ease of use" element. SC125 is an extremely pure carbon steel which translates into absolute incredible performance in terms of sharpness, retaining sharpness and sharpening ease. On the other hand, it also has one disadvantage: The steel creates patina very easily, but we solve this by putting it in a "sandwich" made of stainless steel. This technique is better known as Sanmai.
Now that the carbon steel is protected, you, the chefs, already have one less worry on your mind. You can now use this knife carefree, enjoy the extreme sharpness that carbon steel has to offer, without having to suffer the disadvantages.
The handle in the 'Hexagon' collection is the absolute Christmas on the cake! As you have already seen and read, the word "Carbon" or "Carbon" sometimes comes back. This is because I wanted to create real performance animals with this collection. Everything was measured and highlighted until only the essentials were there to obtain an ultra-sharp knife that was comfortable to hold and easy to maintain. And what could be a better choice of material than a material that was originally developed for Lamborghini, called 'Foged Carbon Fiber'?
Forged Carbon Fiber was originally developed for Lamborghini to be able to manufacture their cars even more efficiently. Thanks to this technique, parts that were previously made from aluminum or titanium can now also be made from carbon fiber. The way in which the fibers of the carbon are randomly mixed together makes this an extremely easy technique for casting complex pieces, maintaining the lightweight of carbon with the strength of aluminum.
Of course the material was aesthetically modified by adding turquoise or copper kibble, but you can definitely go for the pure carbon look!
Each look will be made a maximum of twelve times, so don't hesitate too long, because it is gone!
