The distinctive styling of these knives combines the rocking motion of a traditional European-style chef knife with the edge precision and high quality steel that makes Japanese chef blades so desirable. The wider heel provides increased space between the handle and the cutting board, making this knife an ideal choice for home cooks and professional chefs with larger hands.
