KAN Core 8-inch Chef Knife (Hammered VG-10 Blade, Ebony wood handle)

(3 customer reviews)


The KAN Core chef knife with a hammered (tsuchime) finish and elegant ebony handle is almost as beautiful to look at as it is a pleasure to use.

SKU: KANCoreChefVG10HamEb Categories: , , ,


The hammered finish and ebony handle combines beautifully with the 66 damascus layers clad about the Japanese VG-10 steel core. Our inverted teardrop-shaped handle fits hands of all sizes, both left and right. Balanced just in front of the bolster, our knives are made to emphasize a perfectly balanced pinch grip with enough weight behind each cut to get through very tough foods, yet balanced to prevent fatigue. You’re going to love your new best friend in the kitchen!

    I bought my first KAN chef’s knife about a week ago after Kenji praised it in several episodes of his quarantine cooking show. I’m absolutely loving this knife and highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new chef’s knife.

    The blade has a razor sharp edge on it, but my favorite characteristic is probably the knife’s incredible balance. The ergonomics are terrific, and it’s very easy and comfortable to hold and use with a pinch grip.

    Based on this experience, I’ll absolutely buy more KAN knives in the future when Barney expands his selection.

    This is an amazing knife. Not only does it look great, it feels perfect in your hand and makes quick work of anything you need cut. I cannot recommend this knife enough.

    After weeks of looking through this wonderful selection of knives, I finally bit the bullet and bought this one. First of all, delivery was lightning fast, considering the distance it traveled to get to me.

    The first time I put it to use, I fell in love. Razor sharp right out of the box, this knife made quick work of both veggies and meat with very little effort (no tears when cutting onions!). It feels so comfortable and balanced in my hand, like it’s an extension of my arm. I feel that, with proper care and technique, this knife will last me a lifetime, and will definitely be a mainstay in this home cook’s kitchen.
