Dark Matter Carbon Chef 213mm

Dark Matter carbon fiber is perhaps the pitch-perfect match to Don Nguyen's style: boundary-pushing, precise, high tech, and purpose-built. For his latest chef knife, the gorgeous material is Don's handmade material of choice. Sitting atop the tapered, full-length tang of the 52100 carbon steel blade, the recognizable lines and geometric shape of Don's handle provide comfort and control over the 213mm / 8.4" cutting edge. The edge, hard, thin, and hair-popping sharp, sits below satin-finished, convex bevels, shaped provide daily meal prep of ease and rewarding pleasures.

The Story

Building beautifully designed, expertly engineered chef knives at his one-man shop in the US state of Arizona, Don Nguyen's culinary tools lend themselves to daily use in even the most demanding of kitchens and applications. Often beginning with thicker-than-average raw blade steel billets, his knives tend to be work-horse tools, stiff, balanced and shaped to handle hours of cuts that don't necessarily demand a delicate touch. Yet the thin edges and aggressive tips Don shapes with precision are as suited to exacting slices as to heavy chopping.
