Gude The Knife - Barrel Oak
We use oak barrels for our Alpha Barrel Oak series which are more than 80 years old and have become almost indestructible due to their long maturation. In the middle oaks have a greyish-brown heartwood, which has a high resistance to rotting and is ideal for wine barrels.
Even at first glance, it is clear that THE KNIFE. doesn’t have much in common with a conventional chef’s knife. In fact, its seemingly short handle and noticeably large blade with a very wide back, which can only be achieved in a forged knife, are more reminiscent of a designer object.
Nevertheless, as soon as you have actually worked with THE KNIFE., you will realise that this isn‘t just an example of breathtaking beauty, but also, and above all, a kitchen tool boasting unique handling. The fact that the knife contains
nothing but flowing lines and no disturbing transitions automatically guarantees the right grasp and comfortable hand support
at all times.
Cooking with THE KNIFE. really is more enjoyable than just looking at it!
Cutting like a pro. Thumb and forefinger form a U and securely grip the blade of THE KNIFE.. The middle
finger rests comfortably in the finely machined notch at the rear of the blade. So the centre of gravity lies perfect- ly within the hand. This shortens the lever length, the force of the hand acts straight downwards, thus ensuring an untiring natural action. Due to the weight being centred within the hand, the knife simply drops
straight into whatever you are cutting.
