The Gude Delta paring knife has a 3.5 inch long, almost straight blade made of stainless & hand-ground chrome-vanadium-molybdenum knife steel. So it's perfect for all the precision work where long blades are too long, e.g. cutting vegetables such as onions, garlic or small potatoes.
The Gude Delta knife series is hand-forged entirely with a drop hammer, as usual at the traditional knife manufacturer in Solingen, Germany. The blade is made of stainless chrome-molybdenum-vanadium knife steel and hand-sharpened. The raw blank is further processed in more than 40 largely manual operations. The grip inlays consist of grenadilla, a savannah wood from which musical instruments (flute, oboe) are usually made. The handle inlays are raised and therefore look particularly noble. The solid execution and the generously used materials give the knives of the Gude Delta series an extraordinary balance and make cutting a special experience. The classic handle shapes, which has been in use for over 100 years, has been retained - enlarged for the smaller knives.
