The Chroma P18 Type 301 8” Chef’s Knife is one of the most popular knives in the kitchen. This size knife is large enough to manage almost all cutting tasks in the kitchen and can still be easy to maintain control. This 20cm knife can cut, chop, mince, and slice fruits and vegetables.
The hygienic, ergonomic handle of the 8” Chef’s Knife is designed by F.A. Porsche, and chef of the year Jörg Wörther. This unique handle is comfortable to hold and features a metal “pearl” that separates handle from blade. The blade of the handle is formed from high-quality Japanese 301 Steel Blade, while the handle is constructed from stainless steel.
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 301 knives be sharpened daily when used in a professional setting, and about every six months for hobby cooks.
