Sixty-Seven Layers Of Durability
Saying this product can hold its own in a durability test would be an understatement.
It 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 this one’s blade is already incredibly durable, they can afford to sharpen this one 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 this one 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 this one, while also have a nice sweet spot that 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 product.
The Zelite Infinity is a full tang chef knife, which means that the metal runs all the way through the handle of this one, 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 this one.
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 product is the visually stunning design on the blade. While this doesn’t really add functionality to this one, it was definitely nice to touch an already incredible knife.
The design adds a touch of class to this one, which has proven itself to be a knife of premium quality, and because of that, this product needs to be on your radar if you’re shopping for a chef knife.
