There are a few brands that cause major buzz around here any time they queue up a new launch, and direct-to-consumer cookware brand Made In is definitely one of them. From their mega-popular carbon steel skillet to their stylish Dutch oven, the brand keeps churning out chef-worthy gear that is sure to be a staple in your kitchen for years to come.
Well, we’ve got good news (you knew it was coming!): Begining today, Made In is launching yet another winner—this time, a more petite version of their popular Chef’s Knife. If you haven’t made the foray into Made In‘s cutlery yet, you’re seriously missing out. All of their impressive pieces are precision-engineered for expert slicing and dicing and superior comfort when in hand. Like a child or a pizza topping, it’s hard to pick a favorite out of their current lineup, but our Senior Commerce editor Danielle swears by Made In’s Santoku knife, while others on our team rave about their cleaver, sushi knife, and steak knives.
Still, if you’re going to invest in a singular knife for your home, it should always be a chef’s knife — and now Made In boasts not one but two options. In addition to their traditional chef’s knife, which comes in at 8 inches, they’re now releasing a smaller version that’s just 6 inches long. Forged in Theirs, France (fun fact: the knife capital of the world), this nimble and lightweight model is ideal for making quick work of smaller vegetables and other everyday cooking tasks that an 8-inch chef’s knife just feels too hefty for.
Like all of Made In’s knives, the new 6-inch chef’s knife is forged from a single rod of nitrogen-treated metal, making it nearly indestructible and sure to stay sharp slice after slice. It also boasts a unique Micarta handle, which is extra durable, waterproof, and exceptionally lightweight. Put it to work chopping up veggies for a yummy stew, or rely on it for those close-to-the-bone cuts necessary when spatchcocking a chicken.
Basically, the sky’s the limit with this pro-worthy knife in your arsenal. You know what does have a limit, though? The stock on these bad boys. Because this is a limited-edition launch, Made In has a modest run of 4,000 pieces to kick things off — and their stuff routinely sells out. No matter which way you slice it, you’re going to want to move quickly on this one.
