Made in Thiers, France, this is the knife that retains its razor-sharp edge for 25 years. The blade is made from hardened stainless steel and titanium carbide that is bonded to the steel using a 7,000° F laser, resulting in a rigid edge that remains sharp 300X longer than steel alone and 5X longer than ceramic blades. Made by Tarrerias-Bonjean Groupe, renowned French cutlers since 1648, the knife is made with state-of-the-art laser-cutting machines that shape the steel in three-dimensions for optimal precision. The two-piece ergonomic handle is made from lightweight ABS, providing comfort and ideal leverage for chopping or slicing. The blade is sharpened and polished by precise machines, and each knife is inspected up to 20 times to ensure a sharp, perfectly balanced professional knife. Select set and-or individual knives.
