Professional chefs want a knife that feels like a natural extension of their hand for optimal control. This idea was fundamental to the development of our line of Pro Knives. The contoured handle and curved bolster support your hand, giving you the control and stability to be confident in each cut regardless of how you grip. Forged from high-carbon, German stainless steel, the full-tang blade provides balance, strength and superior edge retention to ensure quality performance for years to come. The 8-in Chef’s Knife is an essential, all-purpose knife with a tapered blade that is ideal for chopping, mincing, dicing and scooping a variety of foods. The ergonomic, contoured handle is shaped for comfort and provides a safe, secure grip. Handwash only.
