Damascus knives are known the world over because of their stability and sharpness. The term “Damascus” refers to how the blades are crafted and forged. Damascus knives have wavy or mottled outer layers that can be found throughout the knife.
The best Damascus kitchen knives will last for years, even with the heaviest of professional uses. The best Damascus chef knife, in our opinion, is the eight-inch Zelite Infinity Chef Knife. The Zelite Infinity Chef Knife series provides several kinds of knives for all uses, from the Honesuki knife (4.5″), boning knife (6″), utility knife (6″) and they even have a bread knife (8″) and a longer chef knife (10″). This Damascus knife is forged from the highest quality stainless steel and an authentic Damascus blade for use. Many professional chefs and enthusiastic home cooks have already reviewed this knife, and it works just as promised.
This is a weighted chef’s knife that helps develop your grip, and you don’t have to push so hard to get the work done. With this knife, it’s best to follow the kitchen adage – let the knife do the cutting. In Japan, this Damascus blade is classified as a go-to knife so if you need a photo knife, look no further. This chef’s knife also has a full tang that supports the entire knife, and it was finished using the Honbazuke forging method. This is the highest standard for knife-making, ever. It’s not easy to find real Japanese knives, and we’re lucky that Zelite made this series. Damascus steel is also hand-sharpened to perfection by highly trained steel masters, so you can expect that this knife’s edge will never be worn down easily.
