Custom 8.2” AEBL Stainless Steel Satin Finished Blade + Spalted Elder Burl Handle + Carbon Fiber & Woven Copper Spacer + Black Paper Micarta Bolster + Red & Black G10 Liners
- America's first culinary blade shape is born!
Where is the American blade shape? The United States has a rich, deep culinary history, but no domestic chef's knife to call its own, until now. I designed the Bowie Chef® to pay homage to an original American shape that is steeped with almost 200 years of history...the Bowie 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 than conventional chef knives, allowing a more fluid motion while chopping. The function of our deep belly blade is to effectively rock and chop food while keeping a nice distance between your knuckles and the cutting board. Due to the knife's balance and weight, it is also excellent for reducing fatigue during longer and heavier duty work.
The AEB-L stainless steel blade is a workhorse in the kitchen and can stand up to the most demanding jobs. AEB-L has great edge retention, durability, and toughness, and since the grain structure of the steel is so small, it is also very easy to sharpen.
