The Steelport Carbon Steel Chef's Knife is the most important tool in your knife kit, used for more than ninety percent of kitchen tasks. It's designed for everything from large projects to quick chopping in the kitchen, as the overall blade shape is defined by the best functionality and comfort. Features a "Sheepsfoot" tip so the user can still safely use their hand as a guide while using the tip of the knife. A finger groove is added at the heel of the blade to allow for comfort and control, while holding the knife in the preferred pinch-hold. All the surfaces are processed to ensure a comfortable soft touch to help with long-term comfort. This includes rounding the spine of the knife.

Steelport knives have solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through Steelport's proprietary differential heat treatment, American 52100 Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched 65 Rockwell Hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold. The handles are contoured to accommodate any hand, offering a unique 2" height at the blade heel for finger clearance. All Steelport handles use Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl, a locally sourced, naturally unique burl wood, stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements and won't shrink or swell.

Carbon Steel is for those who take pride in keeping their tools at peak performance through basic maintenance. Carbon Steel knives like Steelport are not stain or rust resistant. Day to day, it is as simple as remembering to hand wash and dry after each use.

A new Steelport knife is immediately recognizable by its dark two-toned patina with visible grain patterns and temper line. Significant time, energy, experimentation and believe it or not, coffee, went into developing that unique finish to meet our uncompromising standards of iconic design, functional detail and handcrafted locally. Steelport's goal is to provide the best advantages of a well patinated blade from their very first use, while also only using natural products to achieve that effect. Making a Steelport knife is both science and art. Unlike mass-produced stamped blades, every Steelport blade is handcrafted using traditional materials and methods, with some modern innovation, giving each knife a unique character. One of the final steps when making the blades is forcing a patina through a custom etching process, which serves multiple functional and aesthetic purposes. And thanks in part to the unique patina, every blade produces has visible reminders that it was carefully crafted by expert artisans, one blade at a time.

Combining time-tested traditional forging and knife making methods with modern innovations, Steelport is the only cutlery brand to offer broadly accessible premium carbon steel knives that are forged and handcrafted in the USA, using all American-made materials. Steelport is reintroducing heirloom American forged carbon steel cutlery, and delivers trusted performance, exceptional design and handcrafted individuality through rigorous attention to detail.
