The chopper is extensively used by Asian chefs. A real routine tool for thinly slicing vegetables, filleting fish or cutting nice slices of meat; however, contact with bones should be avoided. Equipped with an 18 cm long and 8 cm wide rectangular blade, the chopper stands out for its 2.5 mm thin blade back. Darkwood is a knife collection with a sleek and elegant design, which reintroduces the mythical knives developed by Jean Déglon in the 1920’s. The polished pressed wood handle gives the knife a great resistance to shocks, gaps in temperature and humidity. The stainless steel blade is assembled with 2 aluminium tubular rivets. The blade thickness has been adapted to the specific use of each tool, in order to ensure perfect manoeuvrability.
