The Shikaku knife is one of the pillars of a unique set of five kitchen knives designed especially for the Hefaistos blacksmith shop by our artistic designer and artisan blacksmith Lubomír Dobrovolný.
Thanks to its size and long, straight blade, this extremely practical sheepsfoot knife is a great tool for slicing and chopping all types of ingredients needed to prepare your favourite dishes.
Thanks to modern technology it‘s blade is decorated with beautiful graphics, so not only is it a very practical and useful tool but also a one-of-a-kind piece of art that will appeal and excite both casual and professional cooks.
The knives from this set perfectly meet the high demands for comfort during their active use. Suitable not only in home cooking, but they also satisfy the expectations of maximum functionality required by professional chefs.
Apart from the excellent workmanship, they are also exceptional thanks to the beautiful graphics on their blades, which were achieved by laser engraving. The production of these knives thus combines not only traditional blacksmithing techniques but also the use of modern technology.
The material used is AK5 stainless steel produced in the Czech Republic at the POLDI steelworks in Kladno, which, when properly hardened, has ideal properties for the production of knives of the highest quality. The material is characterised by its high content of chromium, manganese, carbon and silicon. The knives are professionally hardened and tempered to a hardness of 56HRC.
As far as the handle is concerned, ebony wood has been used for its production, which makes it even more exceptional and exclusive.
If you are a lover of simplicity and would like to own this knife without the decorative graphics, we offer that option as well.
