The best chef knife feels like an extension of your hand: seamless, balanced and easy to use. The 4" Cook's Knife is designed to work with you and is great for smaller jobs, like chopping garlic, shallots, and baby peppers. The shape allows for an action similar to a paring knife, but the blade is wider, giving more versatility. The G-10 handle, impervious to both heat and moisture, is designed with an indentation for your fingers to fit impeccably, creating the perfect safe grip. It combines a signature drop handle and control bump that lets you use the knife smoothly and efficiently no matter how tall you are or what hand you cut with, while reducing forearm stress and offering increased stability. The arc of the blade of this 4" Cook's knife creates a classic forward slicing motion and helps increase edge life. Constructed of high-performance stainless steel, the surface of the blade has been treated by a proprietary process creating the "rain" pattern. This process reduces both surface tension and sticking. These air pockets significantly reduce the amount of surface area in contact with food being cut, resulting in a blade that slices effortlessly with an almost non-stick surface.
