David Leathers (Chef. Food Artist.): Growing up in my family’s restaurant taught me at a young age who is the leader in food service cutlery. You can’t slice like this without the best knife on the market. And for me, the best is Dexter. Culinary school teaches you skill, but you’ll always be sharp in the kitchen with a Dexter knife. The Dexter chef’s knife is designed and built for people like you and me, people that make a living in the kitchen. In here, performance, comfort, and durability matter most, and these knives deliver because of the Dexter edge.
Narrator: The Dexter chef’s knife is tough, kitchen tough. Our exclusive DEXSTEEL™ enhances sharpness, performance, and corrosion resistance. Dexter knives are sharp out of the box, and stay sharp. And they’re easy to re-sharpen too, after significant use. The Dexter chef’s knife is a signature piece in your role, because of all the uses in the kitchen. It’s available in 6 inch, to 12 inch lengths, with a deep toil to protect your knuckles while dicing or mincing. The curved blade allows for a smooth rocking motion during cutting. Dexter’s superior edge geometry cuts better through food, and allows for easier re-sharpening. Every Dexter knife is perfectly balanced, so you can work for hours without getting fatigued. Dexter knives are comfortable in your hand, reducing stress on your wrist. Find your favorite grip among the handle choices like Dexter’s most popular Sani-Safe®, V-Lo®, DuoGlide®, and SofGrip® options.

    I purchased this item for my restaurant and I can honestly say that i was surprised. The item description doesn't do it justice. This knife is fantastic!
    High quality knife. Very glad to use an American product. My only improvement would be a more weighty handle. Other than that I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it for anyone over 5'7" due to size.
    This is a good quality knife it is super long. Being long is a good thing because you get to cut more vegetables at a time
    We have tried a few different brands of chef knives from different places. The Dexter Russell has been great for us, great price and stands up to the abuse in the kitchen well.
    All of our line cooks have they're favorite knives and utensils, of course. I have to agree I really like the blade and weight to these knives. Very convinced Dexter Russell puts out a solid product.
    The cadillac of lower priced kitchen knifes. I know that might be an oxymoron but these knifes rock. They hold well and cut well, they all you need and more in a fast pace kitchen environment. The staff loves them and we love the prices.
    High quality to price knife. Takes a good edge on a stone. The handles are great for a busy kitchen, comfortable and grease resistant. Great Price too.
    Used the Dexter-Russell 29253 V-Lo 10" Chef Knife to cut baby carrots. The blades cut through the carrots so easily and effortlessly. Item arrived neatly packaged.
    Great knife for the price, comfortable and sharp. Everyone that used it likes it. I will buy more in other styles.Better than other plastic handled knives.
    These knives are so much better then any of the other brands I've ordered. They hold their edge great, and the texture grip feels so much better than any other handle out there!
    This is a great knife because it stays sharp for a long time and it is comfortable to use. I love to use it when slicing or cleaning meat because it is a no hassle process with this knife. the knife is not very heavy either making it easy to use for a longer time if you have a lot of slicing to do.
    This Dexter-Russell V-Lo 10" Chef Knife is definitely a great knife with the ability to do a multitude of things. The only real problem I can find with it is the price. There are many higher quality knives you can buy for this price!
    This is a great lightweight chef's knife! It is sharp and very comfortable! The V-Lo style is great for added comfort when using for long periods at a time!!
