The overall shape of Steelport blades are defined by considering best functionality and comfort. The 8” Chefs Knife is designed with a “Sheepsfoot” tip so the user can still safely use their hand as a guide while using the tip of the knife. A “finger groove” is added to the chefs knife at the heel of the blade to allow for comfort and control while holding the knife in the preferred pinch-hold. 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 8″ 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.
