The Ergo Chef Crimson Series 3.5-inch Paring knife features a comfort designed G10 handle for perfect balance and precise control. The blade is made from a single piece of high-carbon, German stainless steel (X50CrMoV15) and has a smooth matte finish for stain resistance. The blade is polished and ground to a precision cutting edge. The tapered pinch style bolster delivers beautiful comfort and control without digging into your hand. The Ergo Chef line is the brainchild of a Johnson and Wales trained chef. The chef was sidelined with painful tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome and was desperate to find knives and tools that would eliminate hand and wrist pain. The chef turned inventor enlisted the help of his engineer brother. They worked with designers at the family machining company to examine how a conventional knife fits in a chef's hand, the movement of the chef's wrist and hand during chopping and the angle at which the knife hits the cutting board. The innovative design that was eventually developed took stress off the wrist and hand. After only a few weeks the chef's tendonitis disappeared. Countless prototypes were sent to professional chefs, students and culinary professors across the country. The enthusiastic and positive response gave birth to the Ergo Chef brand.
