Sturdy and well-balanced, this knife features a hefty handle and a fully forged stainless steel assembly. Forged from N690 Stainless Steel by the independent blacksmith ваш Иван (Ivan), this unique chef's knife boasts a distinctive look and shape. It has undergone Cryo-Treatment at -300°, earning it the moniker 'Frozen Sharp.' This meticulous process enhances wear resistance, ensuring the edge remains sharp for an extended period. Known for its durability and reliability, this knife is a testament to skilled craftsmanship.

Why was it designed this way? It draws inspiration from the Japanese Hakata, known for its flat profile resembling a nakiri, allowing for efficient push/pull cutting in the kitchen without sacrificing the aggressive tip needed for precise mincing. Additionally, it is crafted as an ideal shape for those who prefer hefty knives and use a pinch-grip, eliminating the necessity for a bulky handle that might hinder the cutting process. Lastely, no wooden handle means less maintenance so it can be a great at-home or even at work workhorse thanks to the Böhler steel.
