The Mac Ultimate Chef's Knife is modeled after the standard French chef's knife which has a slightly curved edge and a fast taper towards the tip. This is compared to a Japanese chef's knife which has a more gradual taper from the heel to the tip. A multipurpose knife for just about anything you would cut on a cutting board. The Mac Ultimate series features larger bolsters than the Mac Professional Series to mimic the weight and heft of a traditional European, forged knife while maintaining a thin, Japanese-style stamped blade. These blades are made with Mac sub-zero tempered Superior steel for better edge retention. The weight of the bolster in combination with the blade makes this extremely well balanced in the center of your hand. Cut through most foods using minimal effort. Made in Japan with a 25-year warranty.
