Product Details

Cimetar knives are used primarily for precisely cutting various types of meat. They feature a recognizable design that mirrors traditional blades, but that swept design also enables them to cut large portions of meat very precisely. This 11" Forged Cimeter Knife (KGE-10) from Update International features a hand-honed edge made from strong German steel for the sharpest, most precise edge possible. The blade is eleven 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.

Customer Reviews

11" Forged Cimeter Knife is rated 4.4444 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My past includes being a Butcher and Sous Chef and very handy with knives. I missed the longer knives but with limited workspace I was reluctant to spend the big bucks. This knife went from a test to full time use. Can't beat it for the price. For a long knife the balance is good. I have big hands so the handle is a little small for me, but this is normal for me and I have learned to grip the top of the blade with the handle. The edge seems to be holding up well, haven't had to sharpen it yet. All in all a good knife at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very well built and SHARP knife I am a professional butcher for a Whole Foods store. We do about 100 thousand a week in our department. I needed a real sharp, and durable knife. This looks to be perfect. Upon taking it out of the plastic holder it comes in, it cut through paper. A few quick runs across my steel and I can shave the hair off my wrist. I am not joking. If you want a larger knife that feels great in your hands, and I have BIG hands, try this. It cost less than 21 dollars to my door through Food Service Warehouse. A great deal. I had a Victorinix Cimeter and it was NEVER as sharp as this. Why spend more? If it gets lost or stolen, your out twenty bucks. If you want a pro knife, Then I would recommend this product. I think I am going to order the 12 inch Butcher knife next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife The weight and feel of this knife is perfect. Had a nice bevel on the blade out of the box, but anytime you get a new knife, you should expect to put in some work sharpening it. Knives from a knife maker are intentionally sharpened with a shallow bevel so that the owner can put an edge the way they want to. From looking at the pictures I was worried that the knife would be too thin, but this knife has a thick spine that has a gradual profile taper. The length is great and very conducive to single slice cutting. The steel of the knife is great high carbon stainless that runs a full tang through the handle. I bought this knife last week and I have all ready broken down three pigs and two veal with it. All around you can't beat this knife for the price - or for much higher priced knives for that matter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Knife was larger than I expected. But quickly became my go to knife for cutting up large pieces of meat. Handle fits my hand well and I quickly realized it would not slip in my hand. I don't think there is a cutting job that it can't handle. Blade holds its edge well and I haven't sharpened it yet since I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this knife to have the appropriate tools for butchering,etc. However, after getting this knife and using it for a bit, I started trying it on other general tasks around the kitchen and have fallen in love with it. I now use it like a regular Chef's knife!!!
