Blade process

How is a knife blade processed? 


The blade, the most important part of chef knife, is usually made in two different ways: forged and stamped.

  “Forged” blades go through a complicated multi-step process and are usually made by hand by experienced forgers. This makes forged chef knives more expensive than stamped knives.

  The process of creating a forged chef knife is to heat the steel to a very high temperature, beat it into shape, and then grind and sharpen the blade. 

  Usually, forged knives are full-tang, meaning the blade in the knife runs from the tip of the knifepoint to the very end of a handle.

  “Stamped” blades are made in a less complicated way than forged blades. Stamped blades are cut from cold steel, heated, ground, and sharpened. 

  When you choose a high quality chef knife, consider purchasing a "forged" blade to insure the highest quality.
