TODCR801: Dicer 8 Chef's Knife
Now a tradition at TOPS Knives, an employee design contest takes place each year. TOPS asks its employees to design a knife for specific use with some required specs. In 2016, it was a hatchet. In 2017, it was a chef’s knife. And that is how the Dicers were born. Jesus Arellano has been the graphics manager at TOPS since 2013. Nearly all of the photographs on the TOPS website, social media accounts, and advertisements are either taken by Jesus or edited by him. Out of over 20 submissions, his design for a chef’s knife was selected as the one TOPS liked the best.
So the Dicer 8 chef’s knife was the first in the series to be designed. The blade is roughly 7.75” in overall cutting edge with a little more belly than a standard chef’s knife and is made using CPM S35VN steel. The premium steel will hold its edge better than most kitchen knives and take a very keen edge. The handles were made to be comfortable with a lot of contouring, especially where the thumb and index finger would grip for a pinch grip. This makes using the knife for long periods, preparing large meals for family and friends, for example, a breeze. It also comes with a Kydex blade cover so that the knife can be stored in a drawer or easily taken to the campsite for preparing food outdoors. If you already love TOPS’ quality, fit and finish for your other knives, the Dicer kitchen knives will be a no brainer.

Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
