Regular price $99.95 $0.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.

This 8" Utility/Chef's knife was designed as an upgraded version of our Original series UK-80.  It features our trademark rounded tip with a hole punched in the blade and an up-swept handle for better knuckle clearance when using the knife on a cutting board.

Knife Specs:

Knife Length: 13.06"
Weight: 6.0 oz
Blade Length: 8.13"
Blade Height: 1.79"
Blade Thickness: 2.0 mm

Superior Series Features:

  • 2.0-2.5mm thin blades. Slightly thicker than our Original series but with the same concept in mind: Thinner=sharper. By increasing the blade thickness to 2.0mm, these knives are slightly stiffer than the 1.5mm counterparts and therefore easier to use when cutting hard/dense foods such as carrots, apples, and onions.
  • Sub-zero tempered Superior Steel – the same steel as our Original Molybdenum steel but with an extra processing step to create better edge retention while maintaining the same ease of sharpening.
  • Light-weight due to the lack of a bolster and the thin blade eases stress on your hand and arm.
  • Rounded tip for safety and to prevent bending/breaking the tip (Only on some knives in this series).
  • Hole punched near the tip for hanging the knife (Only on some knives).
  • Sand-blasting strip along the edge to put small pockets of air between the knife and the food you are cutting. This reduces the “vacuum-effect” where a food tends to grab the sides of the blade and prevents you from easily cutting through. (Not available on the SK-40 or SB-105).
  • Elevated handle for a more ergonomic grip and to create extra clearance under the handle for your knuckles.
  • Razor-sharp edge that made MAC knives famous over 40 years ago.
  • Completely tapered from spine to edge, creating a V-shaped blade that glides through cuts with ease.
  • Perfectly balanced weight distribution creates a sense of comfort when holding the knife and keeps you in control of the blade.
  • Slightly curved edge allows you to use almost any style of cutting whether it is a European rocking motion or a Japanese slicing motion.
  • Pakka wood handle has the look and feel of natural wood but lasts much longer.
  • Comfortable balance, light-weight, sharp edge, and thin blade all combine to create a precision tool that is easy to handle and control; reducing the risk of hurting yourself while working on the cutting board.
