Taking a common tool to the next level isn’t easy, but that’s exactly what Pit Barrel set out to do with the “Ultimate”-line. Any chef will tell you the most important tool he or she has is a good knife. This 8” Chef’s Knife is an amazing all-around, go-to knife. The beautiful stainless steel Damascus Blade is individually forged, producing an incredibly strong, sharp, and easy to maintain edge, and an intricate design unique to each knife. The signature real wood handle feels great in the hand, and the custom carved Pit Barrel button and laser-etched logo let you know that Pit Barrel is proud to stand behind this product.
