The handle of the CHROMA type 301 – Design by F.A. Porsche is constructed of stainless steel, and the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. The blade of each knife is carefully razorsharp sharpened by the hand of a master.

me1Chef’s Note: After using this knife for days, and many hours in my own restaurant, I can confirm this is an absolutely amazing knife. The unique and sexy design of the knife, not only makes it a centerpiece and topic of conversion, but it is also fun to use.

The knife itself is extremely sharp, and I mean extremely. I trimmed 30+ lbs of tri-tip quickly, and blade would just glide underneath silver skin, or fly through cold fat.

Although the knife is fun to use, and I appreciate the ball at the top of the handle for good finger grip (so your hands don’t slide), I think this blade really shines in the art department. I’ve never held a blade I wanted to keep as clean, and let shine on the cutting board as much as this one.

The Chroma 1o inch chef’s knife is one of my very favorite knives in my collection, and it is great as a unique addition to a seasoned collection, or even for someone looking for their first chef’s knife, and want a high-quality, chef’s knife to use for any task in the kitchen. *Don’t try to open cans or anything with it though, that would be the opposite of smart.

Description

The knives of the Chroma TYPE 301 – Designed by F.A. Porsche – are impressive not only for their unique, ergonomic design, but also for their extreme sharpness. The pearl at the lower end of the handle functions as tactile stopping point. Aesthetics serve a purpose.

These knives are of the highest quality craftsmanship, with a handle of premium stainless steel and a blade fashioned from select Japanese Pure 301 steel. The series consists of 18 knives plus a comprehensive list of accessories, including carving forks, sharpening  stones, knife bags and various different wooden knife blocks.

This line of knives can be seen in the popular U.S. hit television show Hannibal.

The handle of the CHROMA type 301 – Design by F.A. Porsche is constructed of stainless steel, and the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. The blade of each knife is carefully razorsharp sharpened by the hand of a master.

The advantages Type 301 are:

  • An ergonomic handle – designed by F.A. Porsche working with the chef of the decade, Jörg Wörther
  • A metal “pearl” that clearly demarcates the end of the handle, for better control when cutting
  • A seamless perfection and hygienic transition from blade to handle
  • A special grinding method is used, so the knife stays sharp longer and is easier to sharpen
  • That it is beloved by famous gourmet chefs
  • The out of the box sharpness is one of the best in the industry

Note the following instructions to insure the knife remains in optimal condition for years to come:

  • Never place the knife in the dishwasher. Hand wash and dry after every use.
  • Regularly sharpen the knife using the original Type 301 whetstone. Under no circumstances should a sharpening steel be used, as it will damage the blade.
  • Store the knife in a safe, secure manner, for example, in a knife block so the blade is not left exposed.
  • Only use wooden or plastic cutting boards, never marble or glass when cutting with a Type 301.
  • Only use the knife to prepare food. Do not use it to cut frozen foods, bones, or as a utility knife.

    I received the knife the other day, and I have to say I love everything about it. First off, the packaging it is in was a nice touch. The knife itself I couldn’t be happier with. I’d heard that Chroma made great knives, so I got this one. The knife came in quickly and I couldn’t be happier.
