    The latest of the bench is an 8-1/2" chef's knife made from CPMS35VN cutlery stainless featuring a stabilized dyed curly maple handle and 416 stainless steel bolsters. Thin for the win, this is a beautiful slicer with the balance point just in front of the front bolster in the neck for the pinch grip. 180 grams all up.

    Nice work. Does this have the 'S' shape cross section you've done before? I was slicing some beets the other day and wishing that my cheffy had better release.

    Hi Magnus,

    As per customer's budget, this one is flat and ambidextrous (symmetrical grind).

    At the heel, the blade goes from 0.1" at the spine down to about 0.008" over 2" (just under 3° primary) which makes it a really effective at slicing and dicing. At .008", the cutting edge will be a little fragile for hacking bones, but for most everything else it will hold up fine. CPMS35VN's toughness kicks ass in this geometry.
