The most influential and versatile mid-sized Chef’s knife made for Western food preparation
The K-Sabatier 1834 8-inch Chef’s knife has emerged as the perfect generalist knife to practice any cuisine for preparing meals for 2 to 6 people.
It is unchanged in its shape, designed by Philippe Sabatier, having delivered French cuisine for 200 years. While the cutlery production centers of Sheffield and Solingen have replicated this knife’s design, it also serves as the template for the mid-sized Japanese Gyuto. The 8-inch 1834 blade is the finest foundational knife for any collection, at home or on the line.
This knife has the ability to say, “Yes, Chef.”
Best used for
- Forward or reverse motion control for all preparation: slicing, dicing, mincing, chopping or julienne cutting any vegetable or protein, soft or dense.
- Quickly dice and cube raw ingredients
- Cut clean and even slices for serving
- Great for in the home or for its original professional position on the line
The perfect cutting profile due to its extended edge contact for over half the blade’s length before rising up to its point
Unmatched Precision: Its high-yield drop-forged construction ensures a pedigree of excellence, making it a powerful tool for chefs of all disciplines.
Award-Winning Craftsmanship: The K Sabatier 1834 Authentique collection won the IWA International Knife Award in the Gourmet Knives category in 2009 in Nuremberg, Germany.
Powerful Stainless Steel Blade: The blade is crafted from Z50C13 stainless steel with a hardness rating of 57/58 HRC as a result of cryogenic tempering (-70° -80° air cooled), which creates an increased edge retention while remaining flexible. Resulting in an extra fine double bevel profile, which is finished by a crosswise manual polishing.
Long-Lasting Edge: The 20-degree sharpening angle removes only half the amount of steel compared to the 15-degree angle common to Japanese knives, prolonging the knife’s lifespan.
French Leather Scabbard: Similar to the 10-inch chef knife, this blade also comes with its own handmade French Leather sheath, combining protection and elegance in one.
Knife Sharpening: We offer a complimentary knife sharpening service for all knives purchased from hacher&krain.
