MAC 8-Inch Chef's Knife

Top 10 Kitchen Gadgets

MAC's  8" TH-80 Chef's Knife has a dimpled edge that resists sticking

MAC 8-Inch Professional Hollow Edge Chef's Knife

Made in Japan, the 8" TH-80 Chef's Knife is razor-sharp and determined to stay that way. GAYOT assessed it by performing the three manufacturer-developed tests (Newspaper Test for sharpness, Tomato Test for ability to cut soft foods and Carrot Test for ability to cut hard foods). Crafted from an original alloy of high carbon, molybdenum and vanadium steel, the dimpled blade performed admirably. This knife’s durability and light weight make it worth the investment.
