The Chroma P04 Type 301 5.75″ Chef’s Knife allows for greater control when cutting and is better suited toward chef’s with smaller hands. But don’t be fooled by the small size of the blade though, this 14.2 cm knife is still just as capable of chopping, mincing, and dicing. The wide flat blade allows you to crush garlic cloves.
Chroma wanted to craft not just a high-quality knife, but an astatically pleasing one as well. To do this they sought out the help of F.A. Porsche and chef Jörg Wörther. Together the two created a truly unique knife that is not only functional but stunning. The blade of the knife is made from high-quality Japanese 301 steel, while the handle is made from stainless steel. To separate the handle from the blade is a metal pearl embedded in the knife.
Chroma Type 301 Knives must be hand washed after every use. Never place these knives in the dishwasher, as it could damage and dull the blade. A dull knife blade is the single most common cause of knife related injury in the kitchen. Type 301 Knives should only be sharpened using the original Type 301 whetstone. Using a sharpening steel could damage the blade. To help maintain the edge of your knife only use wooden or plastic cutting boards. It is recommended that Type 301knives be sharpened daily when used in a professional setting, and about every six months for hobby cooks.
