Description: Bradford Knives are made in Kent, Washington. Bradford Larkin's background working in an aerospace machine shop is clearly evident in this high performance, elegant chef's knife.
The chef's knife is the general purpose knife in the kitchen. Long and slim, it is suited to preparation of meats as well as chopping and slicing. This knife has plenty of finger clearance for the rocking chop needed to chop onions and other vegetables. Whether a home gourmet or a professional chef, this is a perfect choice when chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing.
The blade is high performing AEB-L stainless steel. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. Corners along the spine and choil have been nicely rounded for comfortable, extended use. The blade features a bright blue PVD finish.
Carbon fiber handle scales are contoured to swell at the middle, move into a slimmer waist, swelling again at the back, ensuring a secure, comfortable grip. The scales are tapered thin at the front to comfortably accommodate a pinch grip. Bradford's microtexturing provides a non-slip grip even if the handle gets wet.
A leather edge protector is included to protect the knife during storage and transport.
This is an excellent daily use chef knife that will last a lifetime and become your kitchen favorite!
Made in the USA.
