Customarily the preferred knife for most kitchen tasks, our 6-inch/ 16cm Chefâ€™s Knife bears a classic design for general use.ViCeraTM ceramic knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide (also known as zirconia). Zirconium oxide is extremely hard and wear resistant, rating 8-1/2 on the Mohs scale â€“ surpassing stainless steel (5-6 Mohs) and approaching the hardness of diamond (10 Mohs). The Mohs scale, developed by mineralogist Friedrich Mohs, is the universally accepted standard for measuring the hardness of minerals. The primary difference between ViCeraTM and other ceramic knife manufacturers is the size of the zirconium oxide particles in the finished blade. Using advanced technology, the zirconium oxide particles in ViCeraTM blades are broken down to one fifth of their original size. They are then pressed using 500 tons of pressure (compared to the 200 tons used by other ceramic producers). The end result is a stronger, denser blade with substantially longer edge retention. Because ViCeraTM knives are forged to such exacting standards, there is no need to polish the entire blade before final presentation, which other manufacturers must do. When applied to the entire blade, polishing can create tiny, almost invisible cracks, which can compromise quality and make the knife more susceptible to breakage. ViCeraTM blades are only polished on the cutting edge revealing a brilliant, dense, white blade that naturally resists staining. When you pick up a ViCeraTM ceramic knife, you are holding a perfect balance of new technology and old-world craftsmanship. A brilliant, white blade that is as light as a feather and tougher than nails.
Award winning knife designer ken onion has designed this gorgeous and functional rain series of knives. This collection combines high-quality materials, a unique blade pattern and a distinctive handle, resulting in a series of knives that are both visually stunning and offer superior function and ergonomics. Constructed of high performance stainless steel, the unique blades have been treated by a proprietary process that creates a beautiful rain pattern in the knife blade. This pattern acts as both a design feature and a function. The raised pattern reduces drag and surface tension across the blade which helps in cutting and having food stick to the surface of the knife. The handles are designed to be the most comfortable and ergonomic, putting your hand into the most efficient position for cutting. The handles are constructed of g-10 material. This is an incredibly strong, military grade material that is highly impervious to both heat and moisture. There are 14 knives in this collection.

Bluesim Professional 8 inches Stainless Steel Wood Handle Chef's Knife, 8.5oz, Manipulate for Different Functions such as Chopping, Mincing, Dicing, and Slicing, with Lifetime Guarantee
How to find a Chef's Knife to Fit Your Hand The list of characteristics to pay attention to when trying out knives is short, but important. It will pay off in your long-term investment to give special attention to how the knife feels as you try it out. Size: An 8-inch knife is a good standard size to begin with. Like our Bluesim's knife. At this size, it's easier to manipulate the knife for multiple functions including slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping. A 10-inch chef's knife is perfect for performing heavier jobs such as breaking down a chicken, but can feel clumsy or intimidating for everyday use, especially for novice chefs. A 6-inch knife is the easiest for small hands to manipulate, but may not hold up for larger items. Weight: Ask a group of chefs which is better - a heavier or lighter chef's knife -and you will receive a variety of answers. One answer that is consistent is that the ideal weight of your chef's knife should suit your preference. Bluesim chef's knife weight: 8.5 oz, you can enjoy the free-flowing movement of lighter designs. Balance: The balance of a knife is just as important as the weight and size. Balance refers to how the weight of the knife feels when it's held in your hand. If the weight of the knife keels overtly towards the blade or if the weight falls back into the handle, the balance may not be right for you. The knife should feel evenly stable when held, as if it were an extension of your own hand. When purchasing a chef's knife, keep in mind that finding the right one is a personal decision. Take your time and have fun in the hunt, in the end you will have a knife that you love to work with.
