Green Chopper Discovery Pro.
This knife combines the best qualities of both Western and Japanese blades. With its large, powerful blade, you get a true workhorse that handles larger vegetables, fruits, or cuts of meat. It's designed to chop and cut ingredients that take up more space on the cutting board. The knife is the flagship of the Discovery Pro series.
Steel: The knife is made from the finest Japanese VG10 steel. VG10 is developed and crafted by Takefu Special Steel Co. in Echizen, Japan. The VG10 name may only be used when produced by Takefu Special Steel Co. in Japan. VG10 adds strength and power to this knife due to its exceptional raw strength.
Construction: The knife is hand-ground and polished to achieve ultimate sharpness. It's forged in 67 layers, with 33 layers on each side of the core steel. The steel is hardened at over 1000 degrees and then cooled to below -180 degrees. This process ensures the steel's hardness at 60-61 HRC and contributes to the knife's lightness, strength, and incredible sharpness.
Handle: The FSC-certified Pakka wood makes a significant difference as it's resistant to heat and distortion. Pakka wood is water-resistant, providing stable control over the knife. It consists of compressed wood fibers treated with resin. The handle is ergonomically designed, ensuring a comfortable grip.
We recommend: Hand washing this knife since it's crafted from the finest VG10 Japanese steel. Use a ceramic honing rod frequently to maintain sharpness. Proper storage and occasional oiling of the handle are advisable.
