Chroma knives are beautifully engineered professional tools used by the world’s best chefs, from Ferran Adria of el Bulli to the restaurants of Alan Ducaisse and Joel Rubechon . In fact Chroma knives are found in the kitchens of 90 percent of the Michelin starred restaurants in Europe.
Unlike other knife brands Chroma knives never pay chefs to use our knives, chefs use our knives because they want to not because they are paid to do so.
Our 2 major knife brands are;
Type 301, designed by F.A Porsche
F.A Porsche worked alongside the famous Austrian chef Joerg Woerther to create a modern masterpiece, its ergonomic handle is just one of the reasons this knife has won countless awards. The handle of the Type 301 by F.A. Porsche is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel, and the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. The blade of each knife is carefully sharpened by the hand of a knife master and a special grinding method is used, so the knife stays sharp longer and is easier to sharpen in the kitchen
Haiku Japanese Classics. In Japan, the art of the sword smith has a long tradition. Today HAIKU knives are manufactured in small Japanese knife factories out of high-grade modern steel. Borrowing from an ancient method, a bamboo peg (“mekugi”) is inserted from the side into every HAIKU knife where the tang and handle are joined for added stability.
To this day, traditional sword smiths in Japan use this time-tested technique when crafting swords like those once used by the samurai of medieval Japan.
Haiku are the preferred choice in culinary competitions due to their symmetry, lightness and the unique comfort of the wooden handle. For repetitive use in busy kitchens Haiku is the only option.
