The Classic 8" Chef's Knife is the work horse of the kitchen, the essential tool also known as the chef's knife. Indispensable to professionals and amateurs alike, the chef's knife is used for chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing, the rockered shape perfectly suited to the cutting board. The weight and balance of the knife are designed for heavy duty kitchen tasks like cutting thicker and tougher vegetables and meats. The strong forged steel sharpens with ease.
