James Beard meets Jim Bowie.
While many of our knives are designed for culinary samurai, this one is for the kitchen cowboy. As the name implies, it’s all Western. Japanese blade-making favors light-weight, super-sharp blades for agile slicing. The Western Chef is about heft and power, sporting a heavy, almost cleaver-width blade for hacking, chopping, and dicing. Given the choice, if your hands itch for a two-handed broadsword rather than a rapier or katana, look no further, this knife is for you. Keep it in your knife roll or wear it on your chaps — the Western Chef will have you ready for the rodeo when things get Western in your kitchen.
