The 8" Knife

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 63 reviews

A good 8” chef’s knife is vital to the kitchen. Ours is constructed to perfection. With three layers of both high-carbon and corrosion-resistant stainless Japanese steel, it offers a unique blend of ultimate sharpness and a low-maintenance personality, with a comfortable and attractive grip to boot.

The perfect balance

Top-heavy knives cause hand-cramping. Our blade is a full tang: it extends into the handle, so weight is better distributed, and won’t break under pressure.

A knife is only as good as the precision of its cut. In pursuit of enduring sharpness, we were inspired by narrow-tipped Japanese knives and tested numerous angles before landing on a 13° edge.

At finishing, each knife is hand-polished, then heat-treated at 300°F before being cryogenically tempered at a well-beyond freezing -250°. This process alters the structure of the steel on a molecular level, making it harder, sharper, and more durable.

We integrated the classic oval shape of Japanese handles into our design, but used an innovative, stain-resistant composite material in a matte finish to make ours firm and slightly grippy, for safe and confident chopping.

The result? Just the right weight, just the right balance, and that perfect feels-just-right-in-your-hand sensation.

Great weight, sharp as can be, and gorgeous

The weight on this knife is fantastic! It feels heavy and substantial and cuts through the thickest vegetables and meats like buttah.
