Utility Slicer 200mm 1.2842 San Mai with G10 & Carbon Handle


You might think that 200mm seems short for a slicer, but have you ever sat down on a weekend afternoon with a nice bottle of wine and some dried sausage or perhaps a terrine or even the classic beer, cheese and biscuits? I am not saying this knife won’t come in handy in the kitchen, but I am thinking it’s a great little utility slicer for the kitchen and table.

The blade features a perfect convex grind, satisfying balance and weight, and an incredibly sharp, 1.2842, cutting edge. This little slicer glides through produce very nicely.

The blade is also very striking with the eye-catching nickel lightning bolt cutting between the layers of 1.2842 premium German tool steel. The forced, black, patina and brute de forge provide colour and textural contrast, an aesthetic that is maintained for the premium, western style grip.

A combination of black and white G10 and carbon fibre make for a very classy and robust pairing with the electrifying looks of the blade. A very cool, compact, high performance, utility slicer from Martin Huber.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
