With this Eden Essentials chef’s knife you will welcome an all-rounder to your kitchen. Because of the length and height of this blade it will help you battle vegetables, meats, fish, and fruit. However, you can also use this knife to finely chop herbs, crush peppercorns, and peel cloves of garlic. This chef’s knife is great in hand, razor sharp, and relatively low in weight.
A chef’s knife can be used for most tasks in the kitchen, but is not great when you have precise work to do. When you use this knife it is wise to place your fingers against the sides of the blade because it will enable you to work quicker and safer. One of the most used cutting techniques is the one where the tip of the blade rests on the cutting board after which you move the knife up and down or back and forth. In that case the knife is used as a mezzaluna. Great when chopping herbs. For the more precise work you use the Eden Essentials paring knife.
About the blade
The type of steel used for this blade is X50CrMoV15. It is a type of steel often used by renowned brands because it has great cutting qualities and is great against rust. The blade has been grinded down very thinly making the cutting resistance very low for a western knife. You can easily cut most ingredients in half.
The design of the handle is classic and ergonomically sound. The blade runs all the way through to the end of the full-tang handle. This classic German handle – which can be recognized by its handle fasteners – is made from pom. A sustainable, hard type of plastic.
Each knife should be sharpened in time. Fortunately this steel makes sharpening a piece of cake. Simply move the knife alongside a sharpening steel, or sharpening your knife with sharpening stones is something you can easily do yourself! In order to maintain your knife’s sharpness the blade should never touch other knives. For this reason we advise you to store your knives in a knife block. For the same reason you should never use cutting boards made from glass, porcelain, or stone. Always use wood or plastic.
The Eden Essentials kitchen knives are dishwasher-proof, but we advise you to wash them by hand to prevent anything from damaging the material. As a result you will be able to enjoy these amazing knives even longer. Of course, the world is not going to end if you place your knives in the dishwasher once. However, when you use your dishwasher more often the detergent can affect the steel and plastic leaving you with rust on your blade and dull handles.
