6 in French Chefs Knife

Special Price $54.99 Regular Price $90.00
Lighter and more nimble than their German counterparts, French chefs knives offer greater control of the tip of the blade, and use more of a forward motion than a rocking one. While German knife makers are engineers using the latest in robotics, the French remain skilled artisans. Eric, our maitre coutelier (master knife maker) is one of the few who still does all of his grinding in his own shop, for a much thinner and more consistent edge. Each hot-dropped blade is forged from high-carbon stainless steel and finished with an exquisite handle of Sicilian olivewood, fully seasoned and carefully hand buffed to a beautiful satin sheen. Easy to maintain; care instructions included. Handcrafted in Thiers, France.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
