Kitchen Utility Knife 6 inch - High Carbon Stainless SteelWaterjet Knives
The flat edge is a great style for new knife makers. It's a great all around performer. If you don't like it, buy another one. This knife is only available in 1/8" AEB-L stainless and 5/32" 80crv2.
Check the Metals page to learn more about AEB-L and 80crv2. This is a knife blank, meaning that its a thick piece of metal cut in the shape of a knife; it isn't sharp and there is no handle. Your job is to turn it into a beautiful knife.
We highly recommend using our AEB-L stainless option for our kitchen knives. The stainless will offer better corrosion resistance and last longer in the kitchen. Otherwise we still offer our 80crv2 which is still a good all around steel option.
All knife quality steels are annealed to make shaping your knife easier. Steel will need to be heat treated(hardened) in order to keep an edge.
