Güde Delta Utility Knife | 6.5"
By Gude Knives
DESCRIPTION: The latest Güde series of knives is also hand forged from one piece of corrosion-resistant chrome molybdenum vanadium knife steel and is perfected in more than 40 mostly manual process steps. As to be expected, the blade is hand sharpened as well. The handle shells, featuring a very classy design, are slightly raised and made of African Blackwood. This wood species is one of the heaviest in the world and - due to its special characteristics – is also used for the manufacture of musical instruments. The handles are not dishwasher safe. The solid design and generous use of materials give the knives of the Delta series an unparalleled balance making cutting a special experience.
The Gude Delta knife series is hand-forged entirely with a drop hammer, as usual at the traditional knife manufacturer in Solingen, Germany. The blade is made of stainless chrome-molybdenum-vanadium knife steel and hand-sharpened. The raw blank is further processed in more than 40 largely manual operations. The grip inlays consist of grenadilla, a savannah wood from which musical instruments (flute, oboe) are usually made. The handle inlays are raised and therefore look particularly noble. The solid execution and the generously used materials give the knives of the Gude Delta series an extraordinary balance and make cutting a special experience. The classic handle shapes, which has been in use for over 100 years, has been retained - enlarged for the smaller knives.
