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 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. 10" 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.

A great knife with one weakness
I love ALMOST everything about this knife. It is super sharp. The extra length comes in very handy. The handle is very ergonomic. It has just one flaw. The blade is a little too wide for my liking.

I like a wide knife blade on my chef knives. It makes them great for scooping up and transferring chopped items with the knife using the spine. However, on some items I like to spread my thumb and pointing finger over the knife to hold the item I'm cutting down as I cut it. For me, that helps when I'm cutting something like onions and I don't want the slice of onion to slide up as I raise the knife blade.

This knife's blade is just so wide that when I try to do that the spine of the blade hits my hand before the blade is fully out of the onion. The 8 inch one is wide too, but the blade is narrow enough that it won't hit my hand like the 10 inch one does.

If the blade was just a little less wide this knife would be spectacular to use

Not a knife for everyone - unless they LOVE cooking!!!
This is the most phenomenal knife I've ever owned . . . . I hide it once I am done with it so an "untrained" chef won't ruin it. The 10" blade is great, but I think I am going to follow up with the 8" as it is not easily handled by smaller people (just too long). Love the knife/set - if you want to have a great kitchen tool AND impress anyone who see's it, this is your knife!
