Wild Olive Kitchen Knife Set

R5'500.00

Handmade by Anthony Topham, this 2 piece knife set features a versatile 7″ Santoku and 150mm Petty Chef.

The combination of cutting technique, acute blade angle, and sharp edge result in very little cellular damage in the cut surface. This is particularly important for dishes where the fish is eaten raw because it helps to preserve the original flavour and texture of the fish.

Shared:

Santoku translates as “three virtues” which is often used to define its three main uses: slicing, chopping, and mincing. Some chefs also say these three virtues refer to using three different parts of the blade – the main cutting edge for slicing, the heel for intense chopping, and the tip for detailed work – while others say it simply refers to its ability to cut meat, vegetables and fish.
