The Mac Professional Chef’s Knife is modeled after the standard French chef’s knife which has a slightly curved edge and a fast taper towards the tip. This is compared to a Japanese chef’s knife which has a more gradual taper from the heel to the tip. This blade is more common for professional chefs who prefer a larger chef’s knife. A multipurpose knife for just about anything you would cut on a cutting board. The weight of the bolster in combination with the blade makes this extremely well balanced in the center of your hand. Cut through most foods using minimal effort. Made in Japan
- Made with high carbon chrome Molybdenum steel with vanadium
- Rust resistant steel; 60 Rockwell hardness
- Riveted handle constructed of resin Pakkawood with bolster for added weight and balance

This is the Japanese interpretation of a Western Chef’s knife. It is flat from the handle end for about 1/3rd of the edge and then curves to the tip. It is ideal for the Western style of roll cutting.
Function – Multipurpose chef knife. For Slicing, Dicing, Mincing, Filleting and Chopping of meat, fish and vegetables.
Normal length – 180mm to 300mm.
Tip: With the edge flat for about 1/3rd of the blade – 210 mm or longer the knife-edge profile is the same as a 180mm Santoku from the handle to tip and the same as a 180mm Gyuto from the tip to handle – so essentially a 180mm Gyuto & 180mm Santoku in one knife. The 210mm is the most favoured size for most chefs.
