Scanpan Classic Cutlery is crafted from the finest grade German stainless steel. Each blade is expertly ground, honed and tested. The angle must be exact, uniform from bolster to tip and the curve flawlessly tapered. The blade is Rockwell tested to ensure that it's tempered and hardened to perfection. The broad heavy blade of the Scanpan Classic 8-inch Cook's Knife makes light work of arduous chopping, mincing, and dicing tasks.
