8" Chef's Knife - Four Seasons
8″ Wide Chef’s Knife
The Chef’s Knife, also known as a Cook’s Knife or French Knife, is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and thus the most used blade style by professional chefs. The broad bladed knife has a spine which gradually tapers to the cambered, cutting edge and creates a pointed tip. Because of this geometry, this is the one knife that should be well balanced with weight distributed equally between the handle and the blade. The Chef’s Knife is the flagship of cutlery. The blade is shaped so that it can peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, mince, vegetables, fillet fish, and cut meat. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. It is the flagship of cutlery.
The Four Seasons series feature stamped blades of high carbon, molybdenum vanadium no-stain (stainless) tool steel. Designed for the rigors of restaurant and commercial kitchens, the handles are made of Santoprene molded directly to a three-quarter tang for balance and strength. Great knives for the economically minded. Made in Portugal.
