CONTROL Chef's knife

More and more young people are learning to love food cooking, seeing it as a form of self-expression, a way to explore foreign cultures, and a way to take control of their lives.

We designed the CONTROL Chef’s knife to help these people in their exploration. The shape of the handle guides the user’s hand into the correct position for safe, comfortable cutting. Its all steel construction gives it a contemporary look and excellent durability and washability.
