Steelport - 8" Carbon Steel Chef's Knife - 65 HRC, Made in USA Description

The chef knife is the most important tool in your knife kit, used for 90% + of kitchen tasks. If one were to only own a single knife – this should be it. This 8” chef knife is the first and flagship offering from STEELPORT, designed for everything from large projects to quick chopping in the kitchen.

Blade Shape

The overall shape of STEELPORT blades are defined by considering best functionality and comfort. Steelport's 8” Chef Knife is designed with a “Sheepsfoot” tip so the user can still safely use their hand as a guide while using the tip of the knife. A “finger groove” is added to our chef knives at the heel of the blade to allow for comfort and control while holding the knife in the preferred pinch-hold. All the surfaces are processed to ensure a comfortable soft touch to help with long-term comfort. This includes rounding the spine of the knife.

Blade Material / Heat Treat

STEELPORT knives have solid one-piece traditional drop forged construction from blade tip to end cap with an integral bolster for a well-balanced and long-lasting knife. Through STEELPORT’s proprietary differential heat treatment, American 52100 Carbon Steel achieves an unmatched 65HRC hardness at the blade for exceptional long-lasting sharpness, while maintaining a softer 30HRC spine for lifelong durability. The bolster and spine are hand-polished smooth for a supremely comfortable pinch grip hold.


STEELPORT handles are contoured to accommodate any hand, offering a unique 2" height at the blade heel for finger clearance. All STEELPORT handles, are constructed using Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl, a locally sourced, naturally unique burl wood, stabilized with resin to meet tough kitchen requirements and won’t shrink or swell.

About STEELPORT Knife Co.

STEELPORT Knife Co. is reintroducing heirloom American-forged carbon steel cutlery. Delivering trusted performance, exceptional design, and handcrafted individuality through rigorous attention to detail.

STEELPORT Knife Co. believes in craftsmanship without compromise. Each knife produced has a beautiful individuality only found in handcrafted products that use natural materials. No two wooden handles or blades can have identical grain patterns, and each knife will patina a little differently over time, telling a story of all the meals it has helped prepare.

Carbon Steel Care Tips

  • Always hand wash and hand dry (never use a dishwasher or leave in the sink)
  • Always keep your carbon steel knife clean and dry; oiling is not necessary unless it will be stored for a long period of time. Patina is natural and necessary- learn to love it.
  • If rust does occur, it is important to remove it before pitting can begin.
  • Don’t let it get dull – honing your knife while it still has an edge will prevent you from having to sharpen it often. We recommend a ceramic hone or a leather strop.
  • When sharpening, we recommend hand sharpening on a waterstone or wet grinding – avoid any aggressive machine sharpening or any draw-through automatic devices.

Handle Care Tips

  • Treat your handle like you would a wooden cutting board. Use a food safe mineral oil or oil/beeswax mix occasionally or when it will be stored for a long period of time.
