Carbon Steel 22cm Chef Knife with Boxwood Handle
Solsona in Spain is famous for its knife industry, and Pallares founded in 1917 is one of the few remaining family businesses where each knife is sharpened by hand and where every employee is a craftworker.
This chef's knife is a great choice for the serious pitmaster. Its blade is curved and very hard making it ideal for rocking and chopping herbs, garlic, onion, nuts, and veg. Because carbon steel can be taken to such a sharp edge it is also a fantastic knife for slicing tomato.
This is a quality knife and the reasonable price reflects the fact that it is made with natural and sustainable materials in a traditional manner. It is up to you to make it priceless with years of care and happy memories.
This knife is made of carbon steel, which unlike stainless steel is easy to hone to a razor sharp edge and will keep its edge much longer. However it needs looking after - it should not be left wet as it will rust. If it is not being used for a while a rub of oil will protect it. Over time a natural and beautiful patina will develop on the blade.
The handle is boxwood. Boxword is an expensive hardwood that has a beautiful natural cream colour. Over time and with exposure to light the handle will darken slightly.
Do not place in dishwasher.
