MAGNACUT Stainless Steel
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.

It was important to us that our chef’s knife have an incredibly comfortable, ergonomic handle – because the relationship you have with this tool is through the handle. With zero hotspots and zero sharp corners, this knife will stay comfortable in your hand whether you’re chopping a few vegetables or using it for long prep sessions.
Mareko designed the Bighorn’s cutting edge profile so that when it rests flat on a cutting surface, it gives the handle a nice upsweep to provide much more knuckle clearance than you typically see.
Most chef’s knives come in at around two inches wide, but the Bighorn’s extra quarter inch extends its life in terms of sharpening. That results in a knife that will provide years of service to you, and that you can hand down to your children.
The unusual way the heel angles back down towards your fingers is a key design element that makes this knife unique. This purposeful design takes what usually counts as wasted space on a blade and puts it to work as a guard for your fingers, and even making the blade feel shorter than it is.
