Know the difference between a cheap chef’s knife and a nice, expensive one? Proper balance and a solid tang that runs through the handle, among other things. VEARK achieved the balance and simply did away with the handle, allowing the tang itself to function as the place you hold it. In other words, this chef’s knife is made from a single piece of stainless steel. The VEARK CK01 is drop forged in Solingen, Germany, a traditional knife-making town, and each sports a beautiful design all its own. The hard steel allows the blade to retain its sharpness, meaning it’s safer and easier to use. You can get in early on the Kickstarter, which just launched.
