This knife is a multi-purpose utility knife for home use providing a wide blade and it combines meat cutting knife and vegetable cutting knife.

Chromax steel has been specially developed for use in kitchen knives and combines an extreme hardness of 60-62 HRC with good abrasion resistance and limited sensitivity to chipping. The steel is much less susceptible to oxidation compared to carbon steel and therefore stays longer sharp, but if exposed to acids (citrus, onion, etc) patina will develop on the knife. Chromax consists of 1% Carbon (C), 1% Manganese, 5% Chromium, 1% Molybdenum and 0.5% Vanadium.
