On first glance you'll notice what makes Chroma’s 301 utility knife strikingly different. First, it’s handcrafted of Japanese 301 steel, known for its hardness, sharpability (we love coining new words), and sharp-longevity (ditto). Plus, its handle design reflects the dual input of F.A. Porsche, who designed the first 911, and Celebrity-Chef Jõrg Wörther, who had earned the accolade of “Chef of the Decade.” The Chroma's triangle-shaped handle fits comfortably in the hand, is nicely balanced, and comes with a raised metal bead that marks the knife’s point of perfect balance. Knowing this will enable you to have perfect control of the knife. Also, lacking any physical joint or connection between the knife’s handle and blade, the Chroma utility knife bests the competition on hygiene as well.
