"Monster Chef Knife"

Postby Dacks » Tue Feb 02, 2010 1:57 pm

Good morning!!

This is my first post on your forum. I'm a retired professional chef of 36 years and I've now taken up a bit of knife making as a hobby.

I have a question concerning a Due Buoi knife I can find NO information about, and this being a Due Buoi sponsored forum and all.....
This knife is being sent to me to have a new handle made.

This knife(or...blade as the case may be) in shown in the photos below. It was described to me as a "monster chef's knife", but it clearly is not a proper chefs knife. I'm thinking fish monger's cleaver or maybe a butcher's knife.

Any assistance on this I.D. would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

You might go to the Due Buoi site and ask them directly.

The pictured knife sure isn't one of the "fully forged" models they are so rightly proud of....

a chef is essentially a well trained cook, who knows enough about food to be more creative on a dime. chefs also have to be skilled in management, human resources, health codes, and various other things of the sort.
and that kinda looks like a wide scimitar, going off blade shape.
