Chef’s Knife - Corian Handles
7″ Chef’s Knife with Black Corian Handle
The latest addition to Spyderco’s developing line of kitchen knives, this elegant chef’s knife combines modern styling with world-class cutting performance. Its gracefully curved blade is full-flat ground from VG-10 stainless steel to provide a superior blend of edge geometry, edge retention, and corrosion resistance. The full tang is bracketed between contoured solid Corian scales that are permanently secured with stainless steel cutler’s bolts. The result is a hand-filling grip with remarkable balance, control, and comfort, even during long periods of use.
Spyderco’s involvement in kitchen knives dates back to the early 1980’s and the beginnings of the company’s knife production. While fostering manufacturing relationships in Japan for its revolutionary folding knives, Spyderco was offered the chance to produce a series of kitchen knives with a highly regarded Japanese company. They eagerly embraced the opportunity, ultimately introducing a full line of kitchen cutlery and becoming the first company to introduce a commercial Santoku (a distinctive Japanese knife similar to a cleaver) to the US. market. After a brief manufacturing hiatus, Spyderco kitchen knives are now back and better than ever. Like the originals, their new kitchen knives are made from premium MBS-26 steel—a high-carbon stainless steel that is ground exceptionally thin and meticulously heat treated for optimal cutting performance. Their durable polypropylene plastic handles are injection molded directly onto the tangs of the blades and feature a distinctive “stepped” texture pattern for comfort and control during use. Depending upon their style and purpose, Spyderco kitchen knives are available with either a PlainEdge or fully serrated SpyderEdge blade with a unique serration pattern that reduces dulling when cutting on a cutting board.
