If you cook regularly at all, a chef's knife is, quite simply, the one kitchen knife you must have. This 8" size is great for most cooks since it can handle a wide variety of foods, from shallots to potatoes to large heads of lettuce. The curved belly is perfect for rocking through your cuts-and essential when mincing herbs.
The wide blade also lets you scoop up what you cut for easy transfer to the cooking pot. The Kershaw 8". Chef's Knife is part of the Kershaw 9900 Series of kitchen cutlery. With cutting performance that rivals much more expensive knives, the Kershaw 9900 Series offers a full range of classic kitchen tools with clean, contemporary good looks. The blade steel is Japanese AUS6A high-carbon stainless steel and is sharpened to a razor-sharp edge. The handles are co-polymer and provide a soft-yet-firm grip. The handle is exceptionally non-slip, even in a wet kitchen environment.
While you can put these knives in the dishwasher, we recommend handwashing to maintain your knives-and keep the knives from harming anything else in your dishwasher. The Kershaw 9900 Series is NSF Certified for commercial kitchens.
