ONLY 5 BEING MADE AVAILABLE!
I remember when I first spoke to a professional chef about what types of knives he uses. Without thinking, he said, "Town Cutler, hands-down. They make some amazing knives." In a short amount of time, I was speaking with Galen Garretson, the founder of Town Cutler and a former chef himself. I'm proud to be working with Galen. Together, we've picked some amazing knives for our Park West London customers. Honestly, they feel amazing in your hand. I love them. Read more about this knife below. - JOHN
Description & Specs
The Classic Line is Town Cutler’s original knife, with superb edge geometry and a refined fit and finish that has proven the test of time. The Classic Line is razor-sharp, with blades made from AEBL-L stainless steel, initially developed for razor blades, for when a precise cut and fine edge really count. The blade’s matte finish allows the blade to pass through products easily without any break-in period. The stabilized Buckeye Burl handles have an inherent wide range of color and pattern in the grain structure, so no two handles are ever alike. An elegant curvaceous handle supports a wide range of grips, allowing for continuous comfort and maximum control. These knives are easy to care for and ready to go, with a refined fit and finish.
8.5" Chef Knife
The "workhorse" knife. A chef knife is a must-have knife, designed to perform well at many different kitchen tasks. This chef knife is center-weighted and balances thinness and precision, with durability and strength. If you only have one knife in your kitchen, this better be it. This most popular size, the 8.5” blade length is a size most people are familiar with whether they use Western or Japanese style chef knives. The length of the blade can handle larger projects, as easily as it can be used for everyday cutting.
Steel: AEB-L Stainless Steel
Handle: Stabilized Buckeye Burl
Hand-wash with warm soapy water. Don’t use abrasive sponges, which can scratch the knife. Never put your knife in the dishwasher or leave it soaking in water. After cleaning, use an absorbent towel to dry your knife completely. Paper towels work best. Drying your knife after cleaning will prevent watermarks and rust from forming and keep the handle in good condition. For further protection, keep your knife on a magnetic strip, or in a scabbard, saya, or knife roll.
