DogHouse Forge - 8" Western Chef - Wildcat Shokwood

DogHouse Forge - 8" Western Chef - Wildcat Shokwood - Copper Hardware

The DogHouse Forge 8" Western Chef is incredibly lightweight and is a top choice in size for chef's around the world. DHF designed the 8" Western Chef to be a great addition to any kitchen, both domestic and professional. Increased blade height allows full knuckle clearance. The slightly rounded blade tip allows you to rock the blade smoothly into each cut without feeling like the tip of the knife is on a pivot point. This helps create smooth, confident motions from start to finish of each cut.

AEB-L HC stainless steel allows DHF to design the blade with both high Rockwell hardness abilities and corrosion resistance. This gives the user high performance without the additional maintenance required from pure carbon steel. AEB-L is arguably the nicest culinary stainless steel available today. All AEB-L blades are professionally heat treated and cryo'd between temper cycles for maximum grain refinement and edge retention...that's a slick way of saying that they are super hard and hold a sharp edge for a long time.

DISCLAIMER: This knife has surface scratches on the right side that are not visible in the photos. We scratched it while doing group photographs and have adjusted the price accordingly.
