Dexter Russell Chef's Knives

Dexter Russell Chef's Knives

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. If you prefer a forged knife, consider Dexter’s Connoisseur® or iCUT-PRO™ lines that deliver balance, performance, and style. All of these product lines are NSF certified. When you hold a Dexter knife, you’ve got nearly 200 years of cutlery knowledge in the palm of your hand. Dexter is the industry leader because of a commitment to producing quality, American-made knives that perform day in, and day out.
Leathers: This Dexter chef’s knife is the first piece I bought for school. 10 years later, I still use it. Discover your passion, be creative, and stay sharp with the Dexter chef’s knife.
Narrator: Dexter is the largest manufacturer of professional cutlery in America. Our Southbridge, Massachusetts factory has produced the finest quality cutlery and technological advancements since 1818. We take pride in every knife we make. That’s why each knife we produce is tested for quality and performance before it reaches your hand.
Alan Peppel (President and CEO of Dexter-Russell): If you use Dexter products, we thank you. We hope we can be your product solution. At Dexter, we’re not the best because we’re the oldest in America, we’re the oldest in America because we’re the best.

Customer questions about this product

Can this knife be washed in a dishwasher?
No, hand washing with soapy water and sanitizer solution is always recommended. When placed in a dishwasher, the process will often rust and cause damage to the edges of the blade.

    This is my new go to knife. It is super sharp and awesome! It is not heavy like others and it is the perfect length for many cutting projects.

    Great knife!

    These are great knives so far. Most reviews are within the first week of use. And do no good for long term relativity of the product. But I can assure you my product cleaning, storage of items and use will generate the best home review possible. As of right now, this knive is great. More expensive than some knives on here, these should and most likely will outperform my expectations.

    Dexter makes some of the best commercial duty knives out there and this one is no exception. A very good blade made with quality steel and a sanitary nonslip grip.

    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.

    My choice for a every day high volume kitchen knife, I've tried various higher end knives and this hands down vastly superior. Holds blade well, comfortable, slip resistant grip that is essential to heavy prep work. The best available. Trust me, it's the best

    This knife performs better than knives three, four, and even five times its price. I threw my others out and stick to dexter russel v-lo only!

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She reports that it is a great addition to her kitchen - she uses this one more than the one in her knife set, as she says it is both sharper and more comfortable.

    This knife has a very comfortable handle. The blade size is comfortable for our inexperienced students and the shape and style are very popular as well.
