The 8

 

The 8 inch Chef Knife is for those who love only the best.  "The Lightspeed 8!"  This knife was deliberately designed for folks who find a traditional 8 inch chef cumbersome or intimidating.  The graceful blade shape, tapered tang and super thin blade grind makes this nimble knife come alive in your hand.

The thick steel infront of the handle makes for a blister free pinch grip.  The relatively narrow width of the blade is a departure from the recent fad of making knives extra wide.  The blade is wide enough to provide plenty of clearance for your knuckles on the cutting board while making it more nimble and useful for slicing and turning cuts. 

"The new 8 has become my go to knife for all my home cooking."  Corey Milligan, Owner of New West KnifeWorks and retired journeyman cook.
