Custom Order Chef Knives: VG10 Japanese "French Fusion" Hand-Forged Stainless Steel Blades
Custom chef knives in our French Fusion VG10 Stainless Steel series feature individually hand-forged Japanese blades with a gray matte Damascus patterned finish in a modern look.
The distinctive styling of these knives combines the rocking motion of a traditional European-style chef knife with the edge precision and lightweight 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.
We currently have the following chef blades in stock and ready for your custom order.
- 150mm Chef
- 210mm Chef
