He has spent nearly two decades reducing the craft of knife making to its essence, creating his original artisan knives from start to finish. His knives are some of the most beautiful and sought-after cutlery in the culinary world. According to Cooks Illustrated, "The Kramer knife outperformed every knife we’ve ever rated."

The waiting list for one of Bob Kramer’s original knives is still years long, but we’ve partnered with him to create the Kramer collection for everyone: Kramer Essential. These stainless steel blades are made in collaboration with renowned German knife maker Zwilling J.A. Henckels, and each is as close to a Kramer original as they get, crafted to his exacting specifications. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan, it takes a team of 45 artisans 100 meticulous steps and more than 42 days to create each knife.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to join the "King of the Kitchen Knife" himself as Bob shares his knowledge of cutlery and demonstrates cuts, sharpening techniques and the versatility of our new and exclusive Kramer Essential collection.  You’ll leave class with invaluable knowledge of knives, proper knife skills and sharpening.
