Florentine Chef Knife Nr.2 and a tomato
on: October 24, 2016, 10:42:18 AM
A Florentine Nr.2 Chef Knife from a professional Dutch sous-Chef after resharpening, as it sadly had a subpar factory/workshop edge.
The new edge was tested after sharpening by cutting several times into a laminated wooden testblock, and afterwards showed zero edge damage when seen through a loupe.
The parlour trick with the tomato was just icing on the cake.
