Steelport 8" Chef
Steelport Knife Co.
The chef knife is the most important tool in your knife kit, used for 90% + of kitchen tasks. If one were to only own a single knife -- this should be it. This 8" chef knife is the first and flagship offering from STEELPORT, designed for everything from large projects to quick chopping in the kitchen.
- The overall shape of STEELPORT blades are defined by considering best functionality and comfort. Our 8" Chef Knife is designed with a "Sheepsfoot" tip so the user can still safely use their hand as a guide while using the tip of the knife. A "finger groove" is added to our chef knives at the heel of the blade to allow for comfort and control while holding the knife in the preferred pinch-hold. All the surfaces are processed to ensure a comfortable soft touch to help with long-term comfort. This includes rounding the spine of the knife.
BLADE MATERIAL/HEAT TREAT:
- STEELPORT knives have solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through STEELPORT's proprietary differential heat treatment, American 52100 Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched 65HRC hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.
- Our handles are contoured to accommodate any hand, offering a unique 2" height at the blade heel for finger clearance. For all STEELPORT handles, we use Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl, a locally sourced, naturally unique burl wood, stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements and won't shrink or swell.
