BIGHORN CHEF - RED
$500.00 USD– RESTOCKING SOON
When we launched MKC, we started with the Blackfoot blade because we wanted a great, all-purpose knife. We took the same approach with our culinary knives. The foundation of every great kitchen is a favorite chef’s knife, so we created the Bighorn, an 8- inch chef’s knife that can handle everything from carving a Thanksgiving turkey to dicing up cherry tomatoes to coring an apple. If you only have one knife in your kitchen, this is the knife you want.
MKC X MAREKO MAUMASI COLLABORATION
We asked renowned knife maker Mareko Maumasi — with his extensive knowledge as a bladesmith and experience in the restaurant industry — to join MKC and design our first line of culinary knives. To create a top-tier chef’s knife, we wanted to go above and beyond the standard to address common problems people run into with chef’s knives. Mareko designed every square inch of the Bighorn with purpose and precision — and with the goal of making kitchen tasks a joy, not a chore.
DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF FEATURES
As a cryogenically heat-treated stainless steel, MAGNACUT provides the perfect blend of toughness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance. Unlike other stainless steel blades, MAGNACUT can be easily resharpened — even by novice knife owners. More wear-resistant than other stainless steels, and more corrosion-resistant than carbon steel, MAGNACUT is in a class of its own.

LOCKING KYDEX SHEATH
Every Bighorn Chef’s Knife comes equipped with its own custom-molded Kydex sheath with a slip that covers the edge and tip of the blade and snaps on tight. This allows you to throw the knife in your hunting pack, keep it at basecamp or store it safely in your kitchen to protect the edge from other tools – and your fingers.

This is my first knife from MKC. I’m one of those who heard about it from Rogan.
This knife is big, heavy duty and beautiful. I’m still waiting on the chance to use it on something larger like a roast or turkey, but so far it eats up smaller tasks with ease. Looking forward to using it more!
One of the best kitchen knives I’ve ever used! Amazingly smooth with every cut.
First off the knife comes beautifully packaged, and a knife this good looking deserves that. Otherwise, this beauty fits perfectly in my hand, well balanced comfortable grip and more importantly slices like nothing else I have in my collection. I already have my next one purchased and cannot wait to buy others.
Fantastic Knife! Wish is had been fast enough to get the set
Bought this knife on a whim to replace a nearly 30 year old wusthof chef knife. Couldn’t be more happy. Great balance and control of the knife with the notch in the blade near the handle.
