Description

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 chef’s knife is the perfect kitchen workhorse, ideal for chopping, slicing, dicing and mincing meat and vegetables. Wide blade makes it easy to transfer ingredients from cutting board to bowl or pot. Hand wash. 6" blade. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan, exclusively for Sur La Table.

Features Hide

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.

Best chef knife ever
i previously purchased the Epicurean knife block but had to returned due to the cracking on the wood handles. I attended the knife skills class and the chef let me tried out the Bob Kramer's knives, and i just can't let go of this knife. the Damascus is slightly heavier than the carbon steel ones. Being a 5'4"" female, the 6"" Damascus is perfect in weight, balance and grip overall; the 8"" one is too heavy for my use. I also bought the 8"" bob kramer carbon steel knife. Both are great knives, I have them for over a year and still very sharp. It is a little pricy compare to other knives, but I don't think I will need to replace them for the rest of my life. It is a good investment

ITS WORTH IT---Treat Yourself
This knife fits like a glove, has extraordinary hand-feel, superior weight and balance AND its absolutely beautiful -a true work of art. Had a hard time rationalizing the purchase but so glad I did-no regrets whatsoever. I smile every time i pick it up.

Bar none the best knife I've ever owned
My friend got this knife for me for my birthday. It may be the best birthday present I've ever gotten. Not only does this thing look amazing in every way, it feels and handles like a dream. Every aspect of it is top notch. I love using it, and I find excuses to chop things, 'specially veggies. Razor sharp, keeps its edge like a dream. Great work!

Are the Kramer Damascus knives a limited edition line from Henckel?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2014
Best Answer: The Kramer Damascus line is not limited edition. There are some Bob Kramer Stainless Damascus knives from Sur La Table that were limited edition, but it was only an 8"" chef's knife
