Inspired by tradition and innovation, Made In partnered with a family-owned, 5th generation knife maker from the knife capital of the world to create a fully-forged, nitrogen-treated chef knife. Hammered from one single rod of nitrogen-treated, premium X50CrMoV15 metal, this chef knife achieves a Rockwell score of 58-60 and will become the star in your knife block.
Shipping, Warranty & Returns
Made In will pay the shipping in the contiguous US for orders over $49. Items ship within two business days during non-peak/holiday times and orders are delivered to most parts of the US, on average, three business days later. In the event that you'd like to return or exchange your cookware within 45 days from the date of delivery, we will cover return shipping costs in the contiguous US. This product is covered under our limited lifetime warranty. Personalized knives cannot be returned, but are covered under the warranty.

Why This Knife?
When we say our knives are full tang and fully forged, we mean it. This means all Made In knives are made from one solid piece of stainless steel — from the tip through the hilt — and cut through anything. All that our competitors' knives cut? Corners. By welding together two pieces of metal rather than using one intact piece, our competition can cheaply produce a knife that looks full tang and fully forged but doesn't act or age like it.

Our 8" Chef Knife is the perfect addition to any kitchen in need of a do-it-all prep knife. Our versatile Chef Knives were specially designed to excel at slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, deboning, and even scoring dough.
  • Our knives should not be put in the dishwasher.
  • Knives can be returned within 45 days
  • Engraved knives cannot be returned.
  • Engraved knives ship in 2 weeks.
  • Due to our engraving process, gift notes and overnight shipping are unavailable for engraved knives
  • Our knives are produced in Thiers, France.

This was the sharpest out of the box knife I have ever had. Seriously, be careful. Nice feel in hand. Nice quality.

Brian F.

Liked the first one I purchased so much that I bought a second.


The weight is perfect, it can cut through anything, and I love that it came with a band aid.

Sarah P.

I knew I loved this knife, but when my husband, who is a persnickety knife person, praised it, I knew it was great! It’s sharp and a good weight.
