Greetings home cooks, knife moniacs, kitchen warriors, and those with an obsession with steels.
Have you been waiting for a chance to jump on the path of the blade? Seen the recent deals on blocks but don't want to spend money on stuff you won't use?
A deal has finally dropped on a knife that would make even the sommelier from The Continental in Rome say "mmm dessert". Previously it was listed at $116.85 but it hasn't been that price since, although this makes it worth about a gold coin more.
Making some of the finest cutlery I present to you the Yaxell Mon 20cm Chef's Knife, your no nonsense, no-damascus frills, no-bolster, versatile, full-tang, handmade, VG10 kitchen weapon. It features a comfortable micarta handle riveted twice, pinch-grip biased balance point, with a beautiful hamon line. It comes razor sharp out of the box, but those of you who are even keener than most can give it a touch-up on a stone so you can feel like John Wick taking your vegetables and meat to war on your High Table.
But for those of you who are uninitiated, here are the specs:
Steel: VG10 Stainless Cladding (Total 3-layer)
Hardness: 60-61 HRC
Construction: Full-tang, two rivets
Handle: Micarta (linen)
Made: Seki City, Japan
This or Global? Although John Wick goes "global", he only uses the finest cutlery.
Expect similar performance to Tojiro but a nicer profile and fit and finish.
EDIT: CART10 makes it $108~, NAKED15 for $15 off, latitude pay for extra $15 off. Thanks all for the suggestions
