The Chroma P05 Type 301 8” Carving Knife creates a longer cleaner cut when carving up roasts. The thinner blade is better suited for carving up meats, not chopping or dicing. Using a push-pull or sawing motion works best for this knife.
At Chroma, having the knife looks as well as the knife works was also a top priority. Chroma enlisted the help of famed designer F.A. Porsche and chef of the decade Jörg Wörther to make the Type 301 knife line like any other. The blade of this 19.3cm knife is crafted from a high-quality Japanese 301 Steel and blends in seamlessly with the stainless steel handle. A metal “pearl” differentiates the handle from the blade and gives you better control.
Chroma Type 301 Knives must be hand washed after every use. Never place these knives in the dishwasher, as it could damage and dull the blade. A dull knife blade is the single most common cause of knife related injury in the kitchen. Type 301 Knives should only be sharpened using the original Type 301 whetstone. Using a sharpening steel could damage the blade. To help maintain the edge of your knife only use wooden or plastic cutting boards. It is recommended that Type 301 knives be sharpened daily when used in a professional setting, and about every six months for hobby cooks.
