The Dexter Connoisseur® is designed for executive chefs and “front-of-the-house” use in the finest restaurants, hotels, and other institutions. The product line combines premium materials with Dexter’s expert craftsmanship. Sanitary engineered rosewood handles, impregnated with polymers and resins, provide warmth, durability, balance, and stain resistance. Forged blades of stain-free, high-carbon steel are individually ground to create specially designed scallops forming multiple sharp cutting edges. The points of the scallops easily break through tough rinds and pierce the firm skin of fruits and vegetables and also protect the sharp cutting edges. After breaking through the tough outer surface, the curved scalloped edges slice through soft interiors without damaging them. Made in USA. Items marked with the NSF logo are NSF Certified.
