KAN Core 8-inch Chef Knife (Hammered VG-10 Blade, G10 handle)

(4 customer reviews)


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!

SKU: KANCoreChefVG10HamG10 Categories: , , ,

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!

    I got this knife after years of searching for the perfect knife. It is amazing. Cuts so smooth I can barley feel it. I have been asked numerous times how much I spent and when I tell them , they are shocked. Worth way more than what it sells for. Looking forward to buying more knives for my collection.

    I bought this knife for myself at the end of summer from J.Kenji Lopez Alts suggestion and promotion with KAN.
    I’ve held off on writing a review until I’ve used the knife enough to truly know what it’s like.

    I’ve used it daily for about 5/6 months now and not once has it failed me. It’s perfectly balanced and well weighted.

    The blade handles incredibly well and it’s always enjoyable to use it.

    I’ve had to run it over a steel once or twice but never sharpen it. It’s remained taxed sharp as it was when I got it out the box.
    Shipping internationally Barney was fantastic and letting me know what was happening and when. Always able to reply to my messages.

    Great Product, Great service.

    This knife is scary. So sharp, and also hard and balanced. Cook with safety shoes in case you drop it. It will slice through everything it touches.

    My son got me this knife for Christmas. It is the best kitchen knife I have owned. It cuts quickly, predictably and perfectly. It’s incredibly sharp and looks amazing. The pictures don’t do justice to the Damascus look of the blade. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it makes me realize my other knives look and cut like trash. My future knife purchase will be from Kan. Ordering one for my brother as well.
