Buying a chef knife is an investment you won’t regret. The feeling of slicing with a sharp, premium blade is unlike any other. However, looking for the right knife can be slightly intimidating.
With all the brands out there, one could have a really hard time choosing the right knife. Finding the right balance, curve, and material in a knife is no easy job, but the Zelite Infinity makes it really easy by making a knife with all of those features that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
We take a look at this knife in this Zelite Infinity chef knife review.
Sixty-Seven Layers Of Durability
Saying this knife can hold its own in a durability test would be an understatement.
The knife is composed of 67 layers of high carbon stainless steel. This is done by forging one layer, then wrapping the first layer with another layer and repeating this process until you have an incredibly durable blade.
Aside from the way it was forged, the material used also makes for a very durable blade. By using a high carbon and stainless steel hybrid, Zelite was able to get the sharpness and strength of high carbon and the rust resistance of stainless steel.
Sharpened To The Finest Point
Most chef knives on the market today are sharpened to a 15-20 point, and that already makes for an incredibly sharp and durable blade.
But since the knife’s blade is already incredibly durable, they can afford to sharpen the knife to an even finer point of 12, making this one of the sharpest knives in the market.
A Premium Curve
It can’t be stressed enough that a proper chef knife needs to have a curved blade. Most slicing and dicing techniques would require a curved blade for an easier and faster job.
However, chef knives also need to have a flatter area towards the end of the knife called the “sweet spot” which is used for chopping fine herbs.
This product has a really nice curve on the blade, which allows users to rock back and forth with ease while using the knife, while also have a nice sweet spot which chops perfectly.
Comfort and ease of use are of the utmost importance with chef knives, and it is evident that this was a priority when designing this knife.
The Zelite Infinity is a full tang chef knife, which means that the metal runs all the way through the handle of the knife, providing more weight, giving you more control when using it. However, the blade needed to be balanced even more, so they added a steel tip to the handle to balance out the knife.
To add to the balance is a beautiful Pakkawood handle, that feels very comfortable in the hand, and a nicely carved bolster to assist with the more intricate kitchen tasks.
One very special feature of this knife is the visually stunning design on the blade. While this doesn’t really add functionality to the knife, it was definitely a nice to touch to an already incredibly knife.
The design adds a touch of class to the knife, which has proven itself to be a knife of premium quality, and because of that, this knife needs to be on your radar if you’re shopping for a chef knife.
