The Granton range from Brieto is slightly different to the rest of the knives they have to offer. The Molybdenum Vanadium steel core is blasted with a special heat treatment with water quenching at the temperature of 1050°C. It then undergoes a cooling process which takes the temperature under -73°C to provide rigidity and durability to enhance the sharpness. The indentations made onto this knife reduce the surface area of the blade when it comes into contact with food which allows it to separate with ease.
The shape is basically a small Sujihiki or slicing knife. As the name suggests it is a multi-function knife used for the preparation of vegetables and precise cutting of meat and fish. The slim profile presents a smaller area to fatty, oily, and starchy foods where a wider blade would create a stronger vacuum and ‘stick’ more to the food.
Function – Multipurpose for preparing all food groups. A favourite knife of many home cooks who are uncomfortable with large blades.
Normal length – 150mm
Tip: This knife is also used for carving petite roasts, filleting and skinning fish as well as careful dissection of poultry without hitting bones. An extremely useful size for any kitchen.
