Blunt Tip Z-Cut - PlainEdge / Red
Like a traditional bread knife, Spyderco’s Blunt-Tip Z-Cut combines cutting performance with the enhanced safety of a rounded tip. However, its Z-shaped profile provides knuckle clearance and superior leverage when used on a cutting board. Its 4⅜” nitrogen-enriched CTS BD1N stainless steel blade is full-flat ground for optimal edge geometry and is available with either a plain-edged or fully serrated cutting edge. The serrated version features a uniform pattern of small serrations that increases the blade’s functional edge length by more than 24% for voracious cutting performance, especially on baked goods. The pebble-textured handles are injection molded from durable polypropylene directly onto the blade’s tang and are available in black, green, red, and yellow.
Described by the late celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain as “a truly cool item, which, once used, becomes indispensable,” the offset knife is a game changer in the kitchen. Its distinctive “Z-shaped” profile places the handle above the level of the blade instead of in line with it. Like a classic chef’s knife, this aligns the blade’s edge with the finger knuckles while providing ample clearance for them when working on a cutting board. Unlike a chef’s knife, however, an offset knife is smaller, lighter, and much more versatile. Spyderco’s Z-Cut series of knives takes the brilliantly simple concept of the offset knife and elevates it even further with USA-made quality, premium materials, and advanced designs that offer all-new levels of performance. The result is a complete series of cutting tools that will revolutionize your cooking and dining experiences. All versions of the Z-Cut are full-flat-ground from corrosion resistant American-made CTS BD1N stainless steel and have durable polypropylene handles.
Available in a choice of black, green, red, and yellow, their handles are injection molded directly onto the blade tangs and feature a non-slip pebbled texture. Perfectly suited for both home and commercial use, Z-Cuts come in four different blade styles that not only excel at all types of food preparation and service, but also make outstanding steak knives. Proudly manufactured in Golden, Colorado from American-made materials, Spyderco’s Z-Cut knives offer an unmatched combination of performance and value.
