The Chris Kidder Chef: Chef Knife for the "Chef's Chef"

This uber-knife was designed with Chris Kidder, a Los Angeles uber-Chef who currently works as a personal chef and caterer to A-list celebrities and top political officials. In an article in the LA Times, he was referred to as LA’s “Chef’s Chef” for his long tenure as Chef de Cuisine at Campanile, the James Beard Award winning “standard” for Southern California cuisine.

Chris is the brother-in-law of New West founder, Corey Milligan. Milligan says “I’ve been honing my cooking skills with Chris ever since we made breakfast for a college party all nighter while drinking green beer on St Patrick's Day. I finally had to break down and make this gigantic knife for him so I could get him to use one of my knives all day, everyday. In the kitchen, he’s not easy to please.” Learn More
