The Chroma P19 Type 301 5” Hammered Utility Knife is often referred to as the sandwich knife — it can cut almost anything that that goes in a sandwich.  This knife is perfect for miscellaneous cutting tasks that are too small for the chef’s knife but too large for a paring knife.

The 12cm Utility Knife has a blade that is crafted from a high-quality Japanese 301 steel, while the handle is formed from stainless steel. A metal “pearl” is inlayed in the handle.  This unique design used for this knife is the brain child of F.A. Porsche and chef of the year Jörg Wörther.

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.
