To craft the world’s best Chef Knife, we began at the birthplace of the world’s first Chef Knife: Thiers, France. Forged by a 5th generation bladesmith and hardened with nitrogen, this Knife combines the utilitarianism of German blades with the precision of Japanese knives.

Instead of being cheaply welded together, all of our Knives are full tang and fully forged, meaning they are crafted from a single rod of stainless steel that extends from tip to handle—resulting in sharper, perfectly balanced blades.

The closest thing to an all-purpose blade, the Chef Knife features a curved blade optimized for the rocking method, a pointed tip for precise cuts, and a hand-finished, slip-resistant polymer handle. Discover why the Chef Knife is an integral part of prep in both restaurant and home kitchens.

Fully Forged

In Thiers, France, artisans use high pressure hammering to create a stronger and longer-lasting blade.

Full Tang

Patiently crafted from a single rod of metal, a full tang knife offers more balance and fewer weak points.

Razor Sharp

When you grab those knives and you go to slice or chop, the handle should feel good in your hand. The Made In knives definitely meet that requirement and they also keep their edge, and that’s really really important

I would say that a good chef knife is one of the most critical tools you can have in the kitchen. Obviously, almost every ingredient you come in contact with you’re going to cut or manipulate in some way.
