Kitchen Utility Knife 4.5 inch - High Carbon Stainless SteelWaterjet Knives
Mitchell's favorite knife. Small enough to comfortably peel an apple but still big enough for most cutting and chopping jobs. Lick test approved. 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. 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 1095 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.
