Specifications

Weight:175g +/- 3g

PRECISE DISTAL TAPER

Knives are precision ground thinner towards the tip to ensure precise tip work while maintaining a strong point.

AN ULTRA-THIN CUTTING EDGE

For a knife that cuts through food with less pressure and stays sharp, even with wear. Just 3 human hairs thick behind the edge.

SAFETY-FIRST "NO-CUT" HEEL

Designed to guarantee that you'll never cut yourself on a knife's heel again. 2.05" tall with a forward recurve choil. Go ahead, choke up on the blade for increased power and precision.

KNOW YOUR STEEL

Elmax® powder steel costs 30x more than typical German knife steel. Shouldn't you know exactly what goes into it?

ROUNDED AND SOFTENED CHOIL

Your knife should not hurt you or create calluses. Thats why we softened the choils — to maximize your comfort.

ANTI-CALLUS SPINE

Kitchens get hot and uncomfortable. Your knife shouldn't. We can't stand rough edges and think you shouldn't have to either.

"LIKE A GLOVE" FIT

Your hand shouldn't feel cramped on your knife. Thats why we made ours with a slightly longer neck, so your hand can breathe and relax.

HANDLES MADE FOR COMFORT

Our handles were designed to be smooth, non-slip, and, oh-so buttery soft. That "extension of my hand" feeling you've been looking for is finally here.

Elmax® Powder Steel

Carbon: Along with iron, carbon is the base element in all steel. It increases edge retention, raises tensile strength, increases hardness and improves resistance to wear and abrasion.

The backbone of all steel.

Vanadium: Increases wear resistance and edge retention. At ~2800 Vickers, vanadium carbide, is among the hardest carbides seen in steel. Elmax has 30x more V than the most popular German steel.

Sharper for longer—up to 2.3x longer.

Chromium: Leads to the formation of a chromium oxide layer on the blade surface which protects the steel from rusting.

Keeps corrosion at bay.

Molybdenum: Helps with pitting resistance and supports the chromium oxide layer. It adds protection from water, acid, and salt.

Helps Cr fight corrosion.

52100 Carbon
Varied Origins

3rd generation powder steel. Small & homogenous carbides make for a tough (hard to chip) steel, despite high alloy content. Knives can be ground thin as a result. 3.0% vanadium (~2800 Vickers) lends itself to very high wear resistance. Together, these allow for a thin and tough knife that stays sharper longer. 60+ Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Mid-sized & heterogeneous carbides, combined with thin grinds, create potential for severe edge damage. Knives should be ground a bit thicker with less acute edge geometry to avoid edge failure. Given high carbon content, these knives can cut well for long periods, if used gently. 59-62 Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Large & heterogenous carbides create potential for severe edge chipping, despite low alloy content. Knives should be ground thick, with wide edge angles. Therefore, these knives are typically heavy, cut poorly, and dull quickly. 52-57 Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Small and homogeneous carbides, with low alloy content makes for a tough, but very low edge-retention steel. Knives should be ground thin with acute geometry given how quickly the edge will dull. 60+ Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Small and homogenous carbides, with ~1% carbon content, makes for a tough, medium edge retention steel. Knives should be ground thin, with acute geometry. 52100 has almost no corrosion resistance, and must be wiped down constantly during prep sessions. Apply mineral oil after cleaning/drying. 60+ Rockwell for best results.

Stays Sharper Longer

The other guys may look fancy, but their knives sure do dull quickly. And a dull knife is a dangerous knife. That’s why we engaged the CATRA laboratory in Sheffield, England, the world’s leading knife testing facility, to perform a battery of tests on our knives. Artisan Revere knives averaged 933 cuts on the Total Cards Cut test: 2.3x more than Wusthof and Henckels, 1.9x more than Shun and Global, and 1.5x better than our nearest U.S. competitor, New West (using CPMS35Vn). The world’s top testers for edge retention prove that our Elmax® steel knives stay sharper, longer. Up to 2.3x longer.
