Product Description

10 inch Chef Knife designed by F.A. Porsche.Ergonomic handle seemless perfection transition from blade to handle. Special grinding method knife stys sharp longer and is easily re-sharpened. Used by many top contenders Bocuse d' Or 2005 and 2007 in Lyon France.

Amazon.com

Cutting with a Chroma Type 301 knife is like driving a Porsche, and for good reason. Designed by Ferdinand A. Porsche (the designer of the Porsche 911) with input from renowned Austrian chef Jörg Wörther, Chroma Type 301 cutlery excels in both performance and looks. Sleek and sexy, each knife looks like one seamless piece, but the blade and handle are actually different types of steel. The blade is crafted of superfine Japanese 301 steel and hand-sharpened into an acutely sharp angle for precision cutting. The handle is made of durable 18/10 stainless steel, triangular in profile and flat-topped for leverage, a totally unique and ergonomic design. Announcing the transition spot between handle and blade is a metal "pearl" that lets the fingers know their position, in place of a bolster. The comfort and control, not to mention the spectacular visual appeal, of a Chroma Type 301 knife have made ardent converts of many chefs worldwide.

This Chroma 10-inch chef's knife is the all-purpose workhorse for chopping, mincing, dicing, and slicing. At first, the handle may seem small in comparison to the large blade. However, the knife feels exceptionally well-balanced and stays comfortable during long bouts of food preparation. After use, Chroma Type 301 knives should be immediately washed and dried by hand, and placed in a storage block for safekeeping. To sharpen, use only a Chroma original 301 whetstone, never a sharpening steel which can damage the fine blades. Chroma Type 301 knives make exceptional gifts and are covered by a lifetime warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri

Great for the full time cook, chef or at home yum, yum maker.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first used the knife and found that it was light, well balanced and super sharp.
De Provence
Lighter than a Wusthof or Henckels German style chef's knife, this is a joy to hold.

I was informed about these knives from a friend who had returned from Cordon Bleau in Paris...

skeptical and with money burning a hole in my pocket, i ordered one.

love.this.knife.

ive heard people online complain about it not holding an edge, but being a professional chef, i sharpen my knives daily.

using the "pearl" keeps my grip, and i have never had a problem with slippage.

only issue i have is keeping my staff's grubby mitts off it.

interested how the rest of these knives measure up as well.

I bought this knife as a Christmas present for my daughter. We had attended a knife course at a local chain in Chicago and had the chance to use several high quality kitchen knives. This particular knife (and the whole set) is outstanding for women who don't have large wrists and forearms for cutting all day. It's lightweight, well balanced and has no hiding place for food residue. The blade is razor thin and razor sharp. It should be cleaned immediately after use and returned to safe storage. It would be easy to get a severe cut just from a glancing touch of the blade. It is also easy to thin-slice 10 pounds of potatoes and 2 pounds of sweet potatoes in record time and without breaking a sweat. I'm a long-time Santoku fan but I'm happy to play with the Chromas anytime. If I wasn't old already, these would be my lifetime knives, even though I think they're ugly. Ah, well...

I decided to purchase this knife after using it in a cooking class. I cook frequently, but never splurged on high quality knives. This knife is amazing! It's much lighter than many of the German brands like Wusthof and Henkels, but still cuts through food effortlessly. It also has an ergonomically correct handle, so it feels great in your hand. Oh, and not to mention, it's beautifully designed.

I ordered this knife from Amazon and received it promptly. This was the first Chroma 301 that I had purchased. I had seen them before in kitchens, and was initially attracted by the sleek modern design as well as how easy they would be to keep clean (NSF) no where for bacteria to hide. I was pleasantly surprised when I first used the knife and found that it was light, well balanced and super sharp. I have been buying these knives ever since--working on a full set 1 at a time. So far they have all been super quality, no complaints at all. One thing I have a little trouble getting used to is the fact that you shouldn't use a steel with them, the insert in the package states not to use a steel at all. Unusual but I have heard of this in the case of some Asian type knives. You must sharpen with a whetstone which I have learned to do about once a week as I use them daily in our catering business. I gave one to my son, who is one of our chefs, he has used the heavier german knives in culinary school but now loves these. They are sturdy, beautiful and function perfectly.

This is my new favorite knife. I bought it to replace an 8" Global chef knife, my previous favorite knife. I would have stuck with my Global, but I've gotten too used to using 10" knives at work, and the Global just feels too small now. I have a culinary degree, and I work both the line and prep at a high-volume restaurant. This knife has a fantastic grip, it's actually designed for the pinch grip that should be used to properly hold a chef's knife. The balance is fantastic, and it is a very good looking knife. It's actually almost too sharp, the first few times I used it on tomatoes, it slid across the skin a bit before gliding through like a hot knife through butter. After a couple of uses, it's handled everything I've ran it through perfectly. The box it comes packaged in is quite nice as well, serving quite well until I get around to getting a blade guard for a 10" blade. If I win the lottery, I'll be buying a full set of these.

I really wanted to like this knife. I tried researching and watched YouTube videos to see what it looked like and it has an incredibly gorgeous look to it that sort of made me blinded to the functionality.

I am not a culinary chef by any means but cook regularly at least once or twice a day at home; not making any grilled cheese sandwiches or anything like that but full course meals for the family. I do lots of vegetable and fruit preparation in general and I have a Cutco knife that has stood the test of time but I wanted to give this one a try. First off; the packaging in the wooden box and the whole allure of it is fantastic. Makes it sort of like Christmas morning opening the package. The knife itself did not let me down aesthetically, it's also great that you can stand it up by itself.. not really sure what that does for functionality but it looks cool nonetheless.

The blade is THIN; I mean, I could probably bend it easily if I tried hard enough with just my hands. This is the only reason why I returned it; but the blade also sticks easily to garlic and fresh herbs that are cut up. However, I would have overlooked that if the blade wasn't so thin. I tried chopping up some ginger that wasn't even that hard and the blade bent under the pressure and whipped back straight after the cut which scared me a bit. Maybe I am using it incorrectly and this is the first 10 inch blade I've used, I usually use 8 inch ones so maybe that is a problem too. I should go smaller; but because of this, the knife would not serve my purposes in the kitchen. It would be great for soft vegetables and it was indeed very sharp out of the box which was nice but I just need more strength in the blade so this did not make the cut; pun intended.
