This Limited Edition chef’s knife is unlike any you have seen before, unlike any you have used before. You can feel the difference with each cut. Precision control at heel and tip. Butter-smooth slicing at center. This is our Zone Performance Blade Technology. The layering of the Damascus blade steel is different at heel and tip and at the center, providing different types of cutting precision in each of those zones on the blade. The tip is designed for additional control for precision cutting. The heel is tough and durable to stand up to the contact-with-the-board use most common in that area. And the densely patterned center provides for ultra-smooth cutting and, with use, forms micro-serrations to help the blade retain its high level of performance even longer. This extraordinary chef’s knife will be one your most treasured kitchen tools.
