The "workhorse" knife. A chef knife is an essential kitchen 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. Town Cutler chef knives can be found in professional and home kitchens around the world.

Please select all options.
