This knife is balanced for efficiency and comfort. Fully tapered from cutting edge to spine, tip and heel for superior strength and greater cutting versatility. Ground to a perfect, equal edge and fine satin finish. Ask any professional chef and you'll find out, the 8-in. Chef's Knife is the most indispensable of all the knives in the block. Perfectly diced onions and peppers, slender zucchini matchsticks, roll cut carrots and thinly shredded cabbage are just a few strokes away with this powerful, versatile tool. Notice how the blade edge of the Chef's Knife is gently curved, from tip to heel. That's to allow you to use a gentle, even rocking and gliding motion as you cut. The length and weight of the blade helps you work more efficiently. (The longer and heavier the blade, the less muscle you have to put behind it!) Use the whole blade to cut larger items like potatoes and Spanish onions into slices or strips. The bolster gives the knife weight at the heel so the back half of the blade can be used to make smaller cuts. The flat of the blade can be used to lightly "whack" the skins from garlic cloves, too.
Forged from premium quality high carbon, no-stain German steel, new Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery features a sleek, ergonomically contoured grip handle. A full tang design provides better balance and superior strength. In addition, the name of each knife is etched into the end of its handle, so there's never a doubt which knife you're pulling out of the block. Contemporary cutlery is backed by a lifetime warranty.
