4″ Premier Forged Chef’s Knife

Made from the very best German Steel, our full-tang Premier Forged blades are polished and sharpened in our Massachusetts facilities. Handles of exotic imported hardwoods and acrylics are assembled to the blades with triple rivets and then the knives are processed and sharpened to perfection.

The Chef’s Knife is the workhorse of the kitchen. Its broad blade dices, slices, and chops fruits, vegetables and meats while protecting knuckles from hitting the cutting board. The shorter 4″ blade is ideal for more delicate tasks where a wide blade is required but not the length.


  • Signature Craftsmanship. Meticulously formed in our Massachusetts facilities, each of our knives is finished to perfection using state-of-the-art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes. You will never find a better Forged knife anywhere.
  • Unmatched Blade Quality. Blades are precision-forged from the finest high-carbon Grade 4116 stainless steel from Solingen, Germany, using the traditional hot-drop method. Blades are then tempered and ice-hardened to a perfect 58 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale.. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion-resistant and elastic.
  • Gorgeous & Ergonomic Handles. Knives come with a choice of 5 sleek and sturdy handles of either Tough Acrylic (Fire Series & ICE Series), Striated Wood (SIERRA), Infused Walnut, or incredibly strong G-10 (Midnight Series).
  • Superior Handling & Cutting Performance. Full tang blades with triple-riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Lifetime Warranty. Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability. Our Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife we make.

Lamson knives are not dishwasher safe. See Lamson Product Care for more information.

    I saw Lamson knives on some T.V. Show and they were said to be so sharp that a person could shave with them. I found that to be true. I like the 4’’ style. It’s probably the best knife I’ve ever used. Will probably be buying another. Thanks

  2. James F. (verified owner)

    Perfect size for my wife. She had trouble with the full size chef knife. This one fit her hand and allowed her to do everything easier and with more control. The quality of this product is amazing. Blade keeps it’s edge, is well balanced and very well put together.

  3. Richard J. (verified owner)

    This is not my first Lamson and certainly not the last. The quality is top shelf and what a value. These knives could easily sell for 50% more and they are made in the Good Ole U.S. of A. What’s not to like!

  4. Elias V. (verified owner)

    Excelente Wieght balance

  5. Anne O. (verified owner)

    Love it!! Delivered quickly. Great sharp knife for chopping with small hands

  6. Shane L. (verified owner)

    My brother Deron loves his new Lamson knife I got him for Christmas. He compliments the company on the fantastic quality.

  7. Douglas H. (verified owner)

    The knife has proven to be all that we had wanted. Heavy enough to let you know it means business, well balanced and effortlessly slices even the most challenging fruit or veg (watermelon rind, lemon rinds, celery root, carrots, etc.). Perfect for slicing nori, tofu and sashimi for poke bowls!

  8. mark b. (verified owner)

    This knife was a gift to my wife. The beauty is overwhelming and pictures don’t do it justice. The quality is typical Lamson A craftsmanship. This knife functions perfectly for my petite sous chef. Thank you Lamson and keep up the great, pride-filled work.

  9. Matthew T. (verified owner)

    Stunning beauty, the right heft, sharp and precise workmanship.

    I will be adding more Lamson MADE IN THE USA knives.

  10. Jean D. (verified owner)

    Love this knife so much wish you made steak knives. Absolutely the most beautiful knife.

  11. Kaarthik R. (verified owner)

    This is an amazing, beautiful knife that is made in America.
    Could not ask for a better knife with Amazing Zustomer Service

  12. michael w. (verified owner)

    Just what I needed!

  13. Mariela G. (verified owner)

    I hate heavy, weighted knives because I have small hands. It’s the PERFECT knife for smaller built peoples. Its length makes cutting faster (and safer!)

  14. Steve D. (verified owner)

    Great product. Will buy again. Sharp out of the package. Did not require sharpening. Weight of full tang blade is very balanced. No bend in the blade. Silver handle is quality. Was able to chop an onion with ease. Put my former chefs knife back into the drawer.

  15. William B. (verified owner)

    Very handy size makes it a “go-to” knife.

  16. Velma G. (verified owner)

    Have many of this product in the “Fire” series.
