Steelport’s 6” chef knife brings the versatility of their 8” Chefs Knife, but in a smaller more agile size. A 6” Chef Knife is ideal for anyone who simply feels more comfortable with a shorter blade or has limited space - whether that’s on their cutting board at home or prep station at work. The Steelport 8” and 6” Chefs Knife have the same performance aspects, handle size, 2” height at the bolster, and blade width. The 6” has a slightly shorter blade and more curve at the tip. A “finger groove” is added to our chef knives at the heel of the blade to allow for comfort and control while holding the knife in the preferred pinch-grip. All surfaces are hand smoothed to ensure a comfortable soft touch to help with long-term comfort without hot spots. This includes rounding the spine of the knife.All the surfaces are processed to ensure a comfortable soft touch to help with long-term comfort. This includes rounding the spine of the knife. The handle is contoured to accommodate any hand, offering a unique 2" height at the blade heel for finger clearance. Made from Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl & stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements ensuring it won’t shrink or swell. Steelport knives have a solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Steelport’s proprietary differential heat treatment of American 52100 High-carbon steel achieves an unmatched 65HRC hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.
Keep your edge protected with the included custom fitted Steelport 6″ Knife Oregon Maple Sheath, featuring an internal recessed magnet along the spine.
NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
