A Chef Knife is an essential tool for both home cooks and professional chefs alike. However, its size makes it less than ideal for certain tasks. There is no “all-purpose knife”—you need a variety, but this new, smaller Knife may become your everyday blade. Introducing the Limited Edition 6 Inch Chef Knife.

Like the rest of our Knives, this one is forged in Thiers, France, the knife capital of the world. It’s full tang and fully forged, meaning it’s crafted from one solid steel rod, from the tip of the blade, all the way through the end of the handle. It’s our same well-balanced Chef Knife that you know and love with a few Limited Edition upgrades. Here’s what makes this 6 Inch Chef Knife so special.

POM Handle

Crafted from POM, the handle on this blade is durable and up for anything. It’s kept lightweight, functional, and it’s beautiful too. Plus it's easy to care for and ensures it won't slip out of your hand when filleting fish or deveining shrimp.

The Just Right Size

This Knife fills the gap between a standard Chef Knife and our Paring Knife, with a size and shape similar to a Japanese petty knife. Because of its smaller size, you’ll have more control over each slice, dice, and chop. Whether you’re chopping chives, segmenting citrus or just dicing an onion, it’ll be your new favorite tool. Aside from cutting vegetables and meat, this Knife can be used to score dough or thinly slice fruit. Bottom line: you don’t need to pull out the big guns when you’re just slicing an onion.

12.5 Degree Curve

Just like the 8 Inch Chef Knife, the 6 Inch is a full-forged blade that has been treated with nitrogen to increase its strength and to ensure that it stays sharp longer. The 12.5 degree curved shape is ideal for chopping using the rocking method—think mincing herbs or garlic. It is also perfect for boning. While an 8 Inch blade is good for more heavy-duty butchery, the 6 Inch can make those close-to-the-bone cuts when fileting, butterflying, or spatchcocking.

Our Limited Edition 6 Inch Chef Knife is a great addition to your knife block, whether it’s the first of many or the latest in an ever-expanding collection. So go ahead, try this more nimble alternative to your 8 Inch Chef Knife.
