Gude The Knife- Olive Wood
Olive wood is very hard, weatherproof, strongly grained and therefore particularly elegant. Olive trees are medium in size and often somewhat gnarled in old age. They reach a height of about 10 to 20 metres. The oldest are in Spain and are over 1,700 years old. The wood of this evergreen tree grows slowly. The olive tree mainly grows in the Mediterranean region, Middle East and Africa.
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.
