KAN Core 8-inch Chef Knife (Kenji’s knife: Hammered VG-10 Blade, G10 handle)
You may already know this particular knife from J. Kenji López-Alt’s home cooking show. Our most function-forward chef knife may be as beautiful as it is amazing to cook with. The G10 composite resin handle is impervious to water, and the hammered finish will aid in food release. Just don’t forget to actually cook the food instead of just staring at your knife!
The hammered finish and G10 composite resin handle combines both beautifully and functionally 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!
