    This is our twist on the classic western chef's knife. Utilizing its big belly and edge geometry along with full tang construction, our 8.2" Bowie Chef™ is an indispensable all-purpose kitchen knife that is perfect for slicing, dicing, chopping, and rocking cuts. The clip point on this knife is purposeful and unique in that it facilitates higher rocking cuts due to the point being slightly higher then conventional chef knives, allowing a more fluid motion while chopping. Due to the balance and weight of the knife, it is also excellent for heavier duty work such as cutting larger vegetables and proteins.

    26C3 is a carbon steel with a similar chemistry to Japanese Shirogami or "white paper".  It is made by Uddeholm and is an amazing steel for fine cutting knives and razors due to its fine microstructure, low impurities, and high potential hardness. It also offers surprisingly good toughness compared to other steels considering its very high carbon content. It is known for its amazing edge stability, ease of sharpening, and ability to take a very fine razor sharp edge quickly.

    All of our handles are custom made and utilize the finest durable materials such as carbon fiber, micarta, stabilized wood, G10, as well as various metals and alloys. We take great pride in offering a culmination of the best components in the industry and creating a handle that is original and unique.
