The "workhorse" knife. A chef knife is a must-have knife, 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, 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.
Buckeye burl varies in color and grain structure and may vary from the displayed photo, as each piece of wood on our handmade knives is unique.
Blade Length: 8.5 in
Steel: AEB-L Stainless Steel
