Kramer, who holds the title as the only chef in the U.S. certified as a Master Bladesmith, has spent 20 years forging raw materials into custom artisan knives sought after by the pros. His custom knives, which take several years of waiting and cost thousands of dollars don’t exactly equate to an easy acquisition for the household amateur. This collaboration between Kramer and Zwilling J.A. Henckels (who know a thing or two about knives themselves) aims to remedy that by offering up Kramer’s signature quality at a drastically sliced price. Each blade features obsessive detailing like blades made from the exact fine grain carbon steel formula Kramer uses for his custom knives, unparalleled edge retention, brass bolstering and rounded African Blackwood handles. Chef’s knife indeed.
