Cadley Vegetable Kitchen Knife – American Walnut
The Cadley Vegetable kitchen knife perfectly showcases the advantages of the hollow grind – everyone who picks it up is amazed by how light it is, but because of the design it’s retained the strength and rigidity one would expect of such a blade. The hollow grind allows for a far superior cutting action as it leaves a concave profile on the blade and reduces weight while retaining strength, requiring less metal to go through each cut and makes the knife easier to sharpen and keep sharp. `
The concave profile means that the bottom third of this knife is almost perfectly parallel – leaving you a razor-sharp cutting edge followed by less than half a millimetre of fantastic Swedish steel. The blade is made of Sandvik 14c28n, arguably one of the best knife steels available, with an understated matte finish that slides through food smoothly and is incredibly easy to keep clean and is very resistant to scratching. The handle is made of American Walnut. Originally designed as a vegetable knife, many are finding that it’s perfect for just about every task in the kitchen.
Length: 310 mm overall (7″ blade)

Working from an old calving barn on the edge of the Savernake Forest near Marlborough in Wiltshire, the company strives to combine the best of modern technology with age-old techniques in a quest to make the very best chef knife possible, with no concessions or compromise.
