From the knife tip to the handle bottom, there's a lot to like about the Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich 8 in. Chef Knife with CrissCross Crusher. Designed by restaurateur and celebrity chef Guy Fieri from the Food Network, this multipurpose chef knife boasts superior quality, comfort, and craftsmanship. It's great for cutting meat, vegetables, and fruits, and doing it efficiently with the 18-degree precision sharp edge. This knife is made of high-carbon German stainless steel with a full tang and abbreviated bolster for added strength and balance. Hollow ground ovals help minimize sticking for smoother, quicker cuts.
The blade is precision heat treated for excellent edge retention, while the ergonomic design is created to be an extension of your hand for natural comfort. A crisscross surface on the end is perfect for crushing garlic and pulverizing spices, nuts, herbs, and more. The red-and-black handle boasts a flame design with a star. Etched on the blade are flames and Guy's knuckle sandwich logo. A black universal edge guard is included.
About Ergo Chef LLC
Ergo Chef was founded by Scott Staib, a Johnson and Wales University-trained chef. After years of working in the food service industry, Staib was sidelined by tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome - a result of the repetitive motions of frequent chopping and slicing. Together with his engineer brother, Mike, Staib set out to create an ergonomically-designed knife. After years of development and field testing by professional chefs, culinary chefs, and instructors, the Ergo Chef company was born. Created with high-quality materials and detailed craftsmanship, the company's knives feature a unique shape that slices clean, without discomfort to your wrist or hand. Ergo Chef's line of cutlery is available at online retailers, department stores, specialty shops, and more. In 2008, the company collaborated with Food Network personality Guy Fieri to create a knife set under the brand Knuckle Sandwich.
