This is simply the finest chef’s knife that we have had the chance to review. The control that one has when they are using the H-06 is just fantastic, allowing chefs to possess great versatility while having the weight they need to properly deal with meats and various other types of food preparation. The steel utilized by Chroma is a blend of Molybdenum and Vanadium, a combination that represents the perfect blend of sharpness and durability. The additional stability that is provided the knife by the inclusion of a bamboo peg provides that finesse and versatility that makes this Chroma knife a must-have in any serious kitchen.
After a decent amount of time using the H-06, the knife will lend itself well to sharpening. If done with the proper care, there is a good chance that the knife will maintain its place in a kitchen. Make sure to visit the Chroma US website and ensure that the products that you purchase are legitimate (possesses the Falcon mark). The Haiku Original line contains a wide variety of knives (paring, utility, chef’s, vegetable, sashimi, carving) and has a lifetime warranty protecting against any manufacturer defects. Look for the H-06 in stores for around $100-150.
