This chef’s knife is unique, it is the only attempt made in Germany to create a hybrid of the German and French culinary knife traditions. Karl Gude took what he thought were the most valuable aspects of each tradition and blended them into the finished blade. His design is a reduction of the blade depth of the standard German culinary knife, while extending the sharp edge surface contact to twice that of the usual German blade. The result is a blade which delivers more blade control and better cutting accuracy with the typical power capacity of the standard German culinary chef’s knife.

Karl Gude COLLECTION
Like all knives in the h&k collection of makers the Gude Chef’s knife is a unique contribution to the history of culinary knives. Karl Gude chose not to follow the guild’s reasoning that all German makers should make the same style of Chef’s knife. Rather he chose to create a hybrid blade design to improve the versatility of the standard German chef’s knife template. He did this by reducing the blade depth of the typical German chef’s knife but not its heft or its handle. Then he extended the sharp edge surface contact to twice the typical German culinary knife. These changes created a blade which introduced more blade control and better cutting accuracy along with the typical power capacity of the standard German culinary chef’s knife.

The Karl Gude collection is a recreation of the original design that Karl Gude first sold made with stainless steel (the originals were made with carbon staining steel) but with the same kind of wood he used for the original knife.
