Product Details

Asian cutlery has some noticeably different characteristics from its Western counterparts, the primary differences being found in the blade. It generally features a blade that is thinner and more flexible, making it better for both accuracy and precision. They are also more lightweight and more ergonomic than Western-style blades. Update International has captured some of these characteristics in their 8” Chinese chef’s knife (KCC-8). The knife features high-carbon stainless steel with molybdenum vanadium for increased flexibility and a POM handle that resists corrosion. It is ideal for chopping vegetables and cutting through poultry bones.

Customer Reviews

8" Chinese Chef's Knife is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is over all a good product; I found it to be a bit heavy for light chopping such as salad work. The handle could use more heft to it. This is the style that I have used the most. This works great for slicing. The blade holds the edge well and sharpens up quickly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy yet balanced knife that provides for nice thin cuts. Great sharp and slightly curved edge. We bought this knife to make homemade udon noodles. Very impressed with how thin the noodles can be cut. Looks to be well made and will last a long time.
