The "workhorse" and must-have knife for any home or professional kitchen, chef knives are designed to perform well at many different kitchen tasks. Our chef knives are center-weighted and balance thinness and precision, with durability and strength. If you only have one knife in your kitchen, this better be it.
Our most popular size with professional and home cooks, the 8.5” blade length is a size most people are familiar with whether they use Western or Japanese style chef knives. The length of the blade can handle larger projects, as easily as it can be used for everyday cutting.
Blade Length: 8.5"
Steel: Nitro-V stainless steel with light patina
Handle: Mexican Blanket Especial (G.L. Hansen & Sons) with black Micarta pins
Rockwell (HRC): 61
