One of the most versatile tools in any kitchen, the chef’s knife (or cook’s knife) is used to cut, slice, chop and mince just about anything. Because it is often tasked with so many jobs, the chef’s knife has to be especially durable, and the 8½" Forged Cook's Knife (KGE-08) from Update International certainly is. It features a blade that is 8½ inches long and forged from high-carbon stainless steel with molybdenum vanadium. The exceptional quality of the steel ensures that the knife holds an edge remarkably well and resists corrosion. The handle of the knife is made from durable, slip-resistant POM and has a contoured shape to better fit your hand.
