The Dragon Fire 8.5" Chef's Knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and more. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Dragon Fire is constructed of 0.09" (2.5 mm) thick nitrogen-enriched American BD1N steel, hardened to a Rockwell hardness of 63. This extremely robust one-piece construction features extreme sharpness and edge retention. The handle is made of FDA approved black resin and linen red canvas Micarta with three stainless steel rivets. The canvas material is dyed red and brilliantly finished to last for decades. The end-cap of the handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which provides outstanding stability and balance. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan from American BD1N steel with a lifetime warranty.
Unlike regular Dragon knives, the Dragon Fire range is inspired by a French design, with longer, straighter edges. It is a thinner, lighter stock using 0.09" (2.5 mm) thickness of steel, while the Dragon range is 0.12" (3 mm) thickness. The knives are fully ground, and are 30% lighter weight than regular Dragon knives.
