Red Chef Knife, Chestnut Sheath

  • Choose Color

THE American Chef Knife. This is the most important knife in your collection. Our chef knife is made with the best knife steel on the planet. Don't take our word for it. Independent 3rd Party lab testing shows our knives keep a sharp edge >3x longer than our German and Japanese competition. It is also 60% tougher than the top of the line American PM steel. That means your knives are 60% harder to chip!  

If you're a busy line cook or soon-to-be Michelin star chef, you can bust out those whetstones once every 6 weeks instead of every 2 weeks and save the ten minutes it takes to touch up your knife. That's 3 hours of savings each year! Send out to the sharpener at $10 a pop? Now you can save $173/year by sharpening less frequently.

How? We used steel developed specifically for the cutlery industry. It has exponentially more vanadium than "premium" German and Japanese knives and undergoes a 3rd generation particle metallurgy process. Nobody else does this because it's so expensive! Combined, the PM process and the special alloy make a massive difference in the the toughness, wear resistance, and ultimately, edge retention of our blades. 3x the edge retention! 60% tougher. That's why we chose it.

EXPERT TESTIMONIALS

“The Artisan Revere Chef Knife is a must-have in my knife roll. It´s super strong, slices without resistance, and remains sharper longer than any blade in my kit.” 

Chef Brian Alberg

Head of Culinary Development for Main Street Hospitality Group

“Artisan Revere has created a tough knife that not only holds up in a professional kitchen, but it retains a fine cutting edge with minimal maintenance-even after weeks of use.”

Chef Timothy Caspare

Formerly of Michelin Star Quince, and 3-Michelin Star Eleven Madison Park

“After weeks of intensive home use, the knife is just as sharp and precise as when it arrived. Elmax steel was a superb choice for a knife this thin.”

POWDER METALLURGY.OUR SUPER STEEL SCIENCE, SIMPLIFIED.

A blast of nitrogen gas-atomizes and instantly solidifies molten, particle-sized steel ingots. Ingots so small, they cool instantaneously, for smaller and more concentrated carbides—and a significant increase in toughness. The resulting particles are then processed and reheated in a hot isostatic press to make one solid ingot, now capable of the most intense grinding.

The final result: a blade ground to an incredibly thin, sharp, and wear-resistant edge.
