Description

EXCLUSIVE Certified as a Master Bladesmith by the American Bladesmith Society, Bob Kramer is one of the only Master Bladesmiths in the world specializing in kitchen cutlery. Cook’s Illustrated once wrote: “The Kramer knife outperformed every knife we’ve ever rated.” Put simply, Kramer is King of the Kitchen Knife. Saveur dubbed Bob “The Master of the Blade.”  

For this exclusive collection, Sur La Table worked with the master himself—along with renowned German knife maker Zwilling J.A. Henckels—to create an exquisite line of artisan knives designed by Bob and crafted to his exacting specifications.

The utility knife is between a chef’s knife and paring knife in size, making it immensely versatile. Perfect for making small, precise cuts, it easily handles everything from slicing and dicing to peeling and mincing. Hand wash. 5" blade. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan, exclusively for Sur La Table®.

AN OBSESSIVE DEDICATION TO EXCELLENCE
Bob Kramer has spent nearly two decades reducing the craft of knife making to its essence, creating his original artisan knives on his own from start to finish. In his studio, he forges the best raw materials with a relentless pursuit of perfection into some of the most beautiful and sought-after cutlery in the culinary world. Professional chefs often wait years to get their hands on one of Bob’s legendary handcrafted creations.  

RAZOR-SHARP DAMASCUS BLADE
The blade begins with a core of SG2, a super-premium steel with a fine grain structure that takes and maintains an incredibly sharp edge. The core is clad on each side with 50 alternating layers of nickel and Damascus stainless steel, resulting in an exceptionally strong, 101-layer blade. Features beautiful, deep-etched chevron pattern designed by Bob.  

DURABLE LINEN-MICARTA HANDLE
Prized as one of the most durable handle materials available, linen micarta withstands extreme temperatures and resists wear, even after prolonged use. Handle is triple riveted for strength and control, with full tang tapered to Bob’s precise specifications. Each knife features a signature center pin handcrafted by Bob himself.  

CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING
Blade is cryogenically hardened, rapidly cooled, and then tempered twice to maximize durability and achieve a 63 Rockwell hardness.  

TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP 
Skilled Japanese artisans hand finish each knife using a traditional honbazuke honing technique. Blades are sharpened twice on whetstones with custom grits, followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel. The angle of each blade is honed to 15° on each side for scalpel-like sharpness.

DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT
Whether you’re working in a professional kitchen night after night or prepping for meals at home, you want a knife that lets you chop, dice and slice with ease. Bob draws on his experience working in commercial kitchens to create ergonomic knives with exceptional balance for hours of comfortable use.

Differing quality

How does this product differ from the Bob Kramer Shun knives in overall quality, ability to hold the edge, care requirements, warranty, etc. Is there a Shun knife by Kramer the same size and profile? Why would I buy a Shun or a Henckel in preference to the other
A shopper on May 3, 2013
Best Answer: Shun cutlery will likely hold the edge longer because they are Eastern-style knives, but Zwilling knives will be less brittle and easier to sharpen. Both Kramer knives have the same warranty through SLT, as we guarantee your satisfaction in full as long as you own them. Zwilling Kramer carbon steel knives will have the highest care requirements, as they need to be washed and dried immediately and wiped frequently while being used on anything acidic, such as citrus. Zwilling Kramer stainless Damascus and Shun Kramer will have very similar care requirements, as they are both stainless rather than carbon steel.Although knife preference is a matter of opinion, I would suggest going with the Zwilling Kramer knives for 2 reasons: #1, Zwilling Kramer knives are the closest resemblance you can get to a custom-made Bob Kramer knife. #2, The Shun Kramer knives have been discontinued and Bob Kramer terminated his contract with Shun. No more of these knives will be created
