This paring knife is primarily made for larding meat, as the tip allows accurate and precise cuts. At the same time, this knife can also be used to decoratively cut fruit and vegetables. Larding and garnishing knives can confidently be described as small all-purpose knives, for fine cutting work such as peeling onions or apples.
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.
