The blade of the large Gude Boning Knife 1703/16 from the Alpha Olive series is excellently suited for removing bones and skinning and cutting even large pieces of meat or poultry. Tendons and fat can also be removed effortlessly. The blade is hand-ground on both sides, narrow and pointed. It is made of stainless chrome-vanadium-molybdenum steel and allows very precise cuts along the bone and the middle bones.
Gude knives are hand-forged in Solingen, Germany from one piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum steel, from the blade tip to the double crop. The double crop, a special feature of Gude knives, is a counterweight to the blade. The knife is perfectly balanced. The special mixture of steel and the elaborate manufacturing process with more than 30 manual steps give the stainless steel blades with a hardness of approx. 57 HRC a special robustness and longevity.
The handles of the Gude Alpha Olive knife series are made of selected olive wood. It comes from Andalusia in Spain and can be up to 500 years old. This type of wood is generally very hard and extremely weatherproof. The structure is strongly grained and therefore looks particularly noble and elegant. The knives of the Alpha Olive series are not dishwasher safe due to its natural material.
