The 8″ slicing knife is the kitchen long-blade scalpel
The K Sabatier 1834 Authentique 8″ slicing knife occupies a unique place in the history of culinary tools because it is a knife that came from the table to the kitchen. The 10-inch and 8-inch chef knives are versatile workhorses capable of handling various materials. On the other hand, the 8” French slicer is designed for more specific tasks, catering to a narrower range of materials it is used on.
Best used for
Extreme accuracy: The narrowness of the blade’s depth offers unique service when food preparation requires precision.
Controlled cuts: Control the slicer in a straight line or navigate around any curved need, whether working with raw or cooked materials
Fast workers: The slicing knife’s narrowness enables rapid movements, making it capable of executing tasks quickly, saving you valuable time in the kitchen.
Inspired Design: As the finest example of the hammer-forged version, this 8” Slicing knife is the source of inspiration for the Japanese standard petty knife, showcasing its influential impact on culinary craftsmanship.
Award-Winning Craftsmanship: The K Sabatier 1834 Authentique collection won the IWA International Knife Award in the Gourmet Knives category in 2009 in Nuremberg, Germany.
Powerful Stainless Steel Blade: The blade is crafted from Z50C13 stainless steel with a hardness rating of 57/58 HRC as a result of cryogenic tempering (-70° -80° air cooled), which creates an increased edge retention while remaining flexible. Resulting in an extra fine double bevel profile, which is finished by a crosswise manual polishing.
Long-Lasting Edge: The 20-degree sharpening angle removes only half the amount of steel compared to the 15-degree angle common to Japanese knives, prolonging the slicing knife’s lifespan.
Handmade French Leather Scabbard: Each blade comes with its own handmade French Leather sheath, protecting the slicing knife from damage while adding an element of premium craftsmanship.
Knife Sharpening: We offer a complimentary knife sharpening service for all slicing knives purchased from hacher&krain.
