Say Hello to “The Little B”. The smaller sibling of the “Bad Boy” featured on Bon Appetit’s It’s Alive, this great knife is your answer to it all! “Chop, cut, crush, whatever!”

The Little B features an extra-wide 6″ blade, walnut handle, and Brad Leone’s signature. Shaving off 2″ from our full-sized santoku cleaver, the “Little B” becomes just that much more manageable around the kitchen. Perfect for those who don’t need a large chopper, but still want to be able to do the same things that Brad gets up to.

Check out this set, including “Little B” and the “Bad Boy” cleavers at a discounted price (56555).

  • 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.
  • Unmatched quality. Blades are formed from proprietary high-carbon USA Made stainless steel (Grade 420HC-LAM). Knives come with sleek and sturdy handles of Infused Walnut.
  • Durable design. Our blades are precision laser cut and tempered to a hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion resistant and elastic.
  • Superior cutting performance. Full tang blades with double brass riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Our combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensures a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Superior ergonomic handling. A curved and recessed integrated bolster provides a seamless transition from handle to blade, resulting in comfortable thumb and finger support for better control and safety. If you use a traditional or advanced “pinch-grip”, you will love the feel and function of these knives.
  • 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.

    The knife has exceeded all of our expectations and Lamson’s customer support was incredibly kind and helpful when j messed up the ordering process.

  2. Janine D. (verified owner)

    Lamson Love.
    Good knife for my needs.
    As a man with large hands, the ideal “Little B” would have a “Big H”.
    (A thicker handle)

  3. Hunter P. (verified owner)

    This knife is versatile and easy to use. It’s very sharp. The size is just perfect for me! Couldn’t recommend this enough

  4. Martha S. (verified owner)

    One great little knife. I bought the 6 inch. The handle is a joy to hold and blade is sharp but not scary sharp. Great for chopping veggies. Especially useful if you have small chopping boards.

  5. Bita H. (verified owner)

    I cook a lot of Asian style dishes and this knife is sharp, comfy to hold and a breeze to utilize.

  6. Stephanie (verified owner)

    Bought for my husband who is an avid cook. He has the regular size Santoku BL cleaver and I thought this would be a great addition. He absolutely loves it. The best knives he has ever used :)

  7. Gene F. (verified owner)

    Awesome! We love the knife!

  8. Richard S. (verified owner)

  10. John E. (verified owner)

    It’s nice to feel the quality and very satisfy to experience the performance.

  11. Carrie L. (verified owner)

    Love this little guy! First bought the original santoku then had to have the little B!! They are both amazing products!!!

  12. Logan r. (verified owner)

    It’ll have you dreaming about the first time you chopped an onion with the Little B. It slides through a chicken breast with little to no effort and the handle fits your hand like it was meant to be there. If you are thinking about buying this knife, buy the whole set.

  13. Joseph P. (verified owner)

    Perfect sized, and looks great

Had a great weekend with friends and family! We enjoyed some much-needed downtime and even whipped up a delicious cocktail using fresh-cut limes and mint. Can you guess what it was?

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
