Product Description

This uniquely designed Type 301 8-inch chef's knife was created by F. A. Porsche for Chroma, and is the perfect compliment to any kitchen. The knife's handle is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel, while the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel, ensuring longer sharpness. The knife features a metal "pearl" that demarcates the end of the handle and the beginning of the blade, for better control when cutting. Sharpened by trained professionals, the Type 301 series has become a favorite choice among famous gourmet chefs.

The back edge of the blade is just too fine/sharp to balance well.

I cook often and this is the absolute BEST KNIFE I have ever used. I do have that other "famous maker" German knives set, but discovered that Chroma knives are FAR SUPERIOR!!!

They cut trhough everything like butter, but the best part is ERGONOMICS. They truly mold to your palm and are extremely comfortable for all tasks: chopping, slicing, mincing, dicing. Try one - and you'll understand.

Happy cooking!

I had an opportunity to use this knife in a recent cooking class and was pleasantly surprised. I expected it to be "just another pretty face." And it is a gorgeous knife, but, more importantly, it is incredibly well-balanced and feels great in your hand.

I gave it 4 stars because I am, personally, still partial to those heavy, traditional German knives from the likes of Wusthof and Henkel. However, this one is well worth the money. It would also make a very impressive gift.

I've had this knife for a year (as well as the paring knife), but held off on reviewing because I couldn't love it - the factory edge was terrible. However, I was recently given the Chroma whetstone and just sharpened both knives - huge difference, and I'm now comfortable giving this a 5-star rating. Purchase a whetstone with the knife (sharpening is fast, easy, and something you'll want to do fairly often if you cook much anyway).

PROS:
- beautiful, minimalist design
- hygienic, easy to clean
- amazing balance in hand
- great for teaching

(while instructing cooking class students how to properly use a chef's knife, I found that the guide "pearls" really helped them learn how to correctly pinch grip).

CONS:
- dull factory edge
- knife doesn't really stand upright

(if you've seen the promo video, standing the knife upright on the back edge of the blade and handle looks awesome, but in reality this doesn't work well. The back edge of the blade is just too fine/sharp to balance well. In the average kitchen, quickly setting the knife down in between prep means it tends to fall over, so the user just ends up laying it flat. I'd also be nervous about the back edge of the blade damaging the counter if you stood it upright anywhere but a cutting board).

FYI - massive knife sets are overkill. You only need two good quality knives - a good size (8"+) chef's knife and a paring knife (and optionally, a bread knife). Purchase the chef/paring knives and a whetstone and you're good to go.

I bought my chroma two years ago, I work in a very high pace kitchen, and my knife is still a razor. I love this knfe because it stays sharp, sharper then my shuns. It is also as a good weight to it. I have wustoff and henckles and this knife outperforms them by a long shot. It has a great feel to it as well. Not a flimsy or light weight Asian knife you wed to worry about breaking either. Best knife for your buck hands down

I am a line cook, I use this knife every day, and it makes a world of difference. The handle is very comfortable and the knife overall is very well balanced allowing me to julienne veggies all day without fatigue. The edge holds very well and despite what Chroma recommends, I use a VERY FINE DIAMOND STEEL and leather strop (once every other week) to keep the knife razor sharp. The sous chef commonly uses my knife in place of his shuns because of the quality and uniqueness of the type 301. The only gripe is that the knife is not NSF certified (although it is very easy to keep clean) but for the home cook it is a non-issue.
