My Western Chef is available in multiple sizes and starts at $250. Inspired by the German shape and popularized by early American settlers, this knife is a great all-purpose shape with a reaching drop point and tall profile for heavy use in the American kitchen. Hand-forged from 10 series High Carbon steel, Heat-treated in oil for strength and triple-tempered for flexibility. Exotic hardwood handle material varies by availability but is always carefully selected for its beautiful grain. Happy to accommodate custom requests.
