Our Design Story
Our Design Story

German 1.4116 steel

The steel takes a keen edge easily, holds it well and is ultimately more durable and resistant to chipping than harder blades. And German 1.4116 steel's formula is also highly stain-resistant for easy maintenance—it won’t patina or rust if left damp.
FILEWORK pattern
The blade's filework pattern provides grippy traction when holding the knife in a secure pinch grip.
The butt of the bolsterless blade curves inward for enhanced finger clearance.
Made from micarta, a nearly indestructible composite created from layers of fabric tightly compacted in phenolic resin. The material feels smooth and secure in the hand and becomes subtly grippier when wet.
Our Design Story
Designed for durability and safety. Similar to a Japanese santoku, the gently arced blade design can be used for both Western- and Japanese-style cutting methods. Its rounded tip keeps fingers safe.
Ergonomic shaping makes the knife fill the palm for a secure grip and a tapering towards the blade facilitates and comfortable and controlled pinch grip.
Our Design Story
Commonly used for hard-use outdoor knives, micarta is a virtually indestructible material made from fabric compressed in resin. The ergonomic handle is flattened on top, then swells and tapers towards the bottom to fill the palm for a secure grip.

German 1.4116 stainless steel

Long-used for high-quality kitchen and outdoor knives, high-chromium, German 1.4116 steel is ideally formulated and hardened to take and retain a fine razor edge with little effort. 1.4116 steel is also highly stain resistant for easy maintenance- it won't patina or rust if left wet.

Knife In Action

For the Kitchin-to’s™ blade, we chose AUS-8 steel, which has a proven track record in hard-use outdoor knives as well as kitchen knives.
Thin Blade:

Thin Blade:

1.5mm thick at spine, makes slicing effortless. Many European chef’s knives are 4mm thick at the spine, making them hard to use since a great deal of metal has to be pushed through whatever you are cutting.
Solid, Not Heavy:

Solid, Not Heavy:

Weighs under 9 ounces making the Kitchin-to easy to handle even for beginners. Many standard European chef’s knives weigh over 10 ounces with much smaller blades. Also, the kitchin-to is well balanced between handle and blade unlike many chef’s knives there the blade overwhelms the grip, making the knife dangerous and hard to use.
Lock-in Handle:

Lock-in Handle:

Ultra safe and grippier when wet. Classic chef’s knives often use handles that are hard to grip once hands are wet or greasy.
Curved Cutting Edge:

Curved Cutting Edge:

Allows quicker speeds for chopping. A rocking motion for chopping items such as parsley makes quick work – standard Chinese cleavers tend to have straight cutting edges.
