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.

    knife chef Dexter Edge great quality sharp Duo Santoku Chef's
    This knife has made me believe that Dexter-Russell makes the best kitchen knives on the market. The best thing about this knife is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get quality. This knife works just as well as any high quality and expensive knife on the market.
    The Dexter-Russell 29283 V-Lo 9" Santoku Chef Knife with Duo-Edge is a very versitile and durable knife. I have worked with a chef who has used his 7 inch version every day for years, and his knife was still one of the sharpest in the kitchen. The handle seems to be the same on both, and is very comfortable to hold. This santoku has scalloped edges which seem to help release cut pieces and makes for a nicer experience when prepping all day. My wife has used it a few times now as well, and she loves the way it cuts, but feels her 7.5 inch chef knife is still her favorite.
    Our go to kitchen knife. We buy these all the time. They're aren't high end japanese steel, but they still work great. I don't buy expensive knives anymore after these.
    Cheap chef knife - 'you get what you pay for' this is just that a cheap chefs knife. Does not hold a edge well, but works for lite duty.
    We appreciate your review, Christopher! If you are looking for a different recommended knife, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I like the duo edge of this knife that's why I got it. I have a couple knifes like this and they didn't stay that sharp. But it has been 4 months since I've had it and it is still very sharp. This is a really good brand for buying knifes
    Awesome knife! This knife is working out great. It is super sharp and requires minimal strength when cutting vegetables like carrots. So glad I purchased!
    Used the Dexter-Russell 29283 V-Lo 9" Santoku Chef Knife with Duo-Edge to cut a baby carrot. It seemed like the knife didn't need any help at all. so sharp. Fast shipping.

    FOR ITS PRICE The Dexter Russel Duo Edge Santoku Style Chef's Knife is a great multi-purpose tool fitting for professional chef, highly recommended! Keep it sharp!!!!
    What an amazing knife. I am thoroughly enjoying the use of my new knife and especially how versatile this knife is in the kitchen. Dexter makes excellent knives and have kept the quality high, the price reasonable, and still proudly made in the USA.
    The Dexter Russel Duo Edge Santoku Style Chef's Knife is a great multi-purpose tool fitting for an aspiring cook, or a professional chef, highly recommended!
    This has nice length on the blade, great for some leverage, perfect for long time chopping scenarios but it always needs to be sharpened, great
    Purchased as a gift to a cook. The person receving the gift was impressed with the quality. Plan to buy one for myself. I was not looking for price (quality). However, the Chef's knife compares the best you can buy.
