K-Tip Chef's Knife

The large Spectre Chef's Knife with K-Tip is a multi-purpose instrument designed to excel at many different kitchen tasks. Its profile is especially helpful for rapid, staccato, rocking motions. With a Rockwell Hardness of 58, and sharpened to 14° per side using the traditional Japanese Honbazuke method, the impressively sharp, precision-forged blade allows for effortless slicing, dicing, mincing, chopping, efficiently cutting up large cuts, or even disjointing a whole chicken.

The Spectre Series

Japanese AUS-8 steel blades meet the standard of a tough, rust-resistant knife with a significantly long lasting razor-sharp edge. Carbon and Molybdenum explains its rigidity and high wear resistance, Chromium and Nickel increases mechanical strength and edge retention, and Manganese helps increase hardness, reduce structural wear, and makes for easy sharpening. Put that all together, add our heat-treatment and nitrogen cooling process to ensure durability, sharpness, and abrasion resistance, and you have yourself a new culinary life companion.

Adorned with a mosaic pin made of brass and copper, the mirror-polish pakkawood handles have a traditional Japanese D-Shape that tucks right into the palm for unrivaled comfort and control for both righties and lefties. Pakkawood is exceptionally dense, possess incredible strength, won't crack or split, and has high water-resistant capabilities with easy maintenance. This is why its often used in both military and kitchen environments.

Blade Features

Hand sharpened using the complex, three-stage, traditional Japanese Honbazuke method to a perfect 14-degree angle per side for clean, precise cuts and amazing edge-retention, these vacuum heat treated and nitrogen-cooled blades are crafted from high carbon Japanese AUS-8 stainless steel for enhanced corrosion resistance. They have a Rockwell Hardness (HRC) of 58, providing maximum strength, flexibility, & blade edge durability. AUS-8 steel also incorporates vanadium, which further improves the blade’s durability and edge retention.

Handle Features

Spectre Series handles have a contoured bolster which provides a comfortable pinch grip for enhanced knife control, and a stainless-steel laser etched end cap counterbalance. Pakkawood is used for both military and kitchen applications due to its incredible strength and exceptional density. It is nearly impervious to heat, cold, and moisture. The handle has full tang strength, which means the blade extends all the way through the entire handle, for lifelong durability and safety. Its seamless build ensures that no dirt or food debris can ever infiltrate its body, keeping the handle safe and hygienic in busy kitchens.
