6″ 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 touching the cutting board.

Our 6″ knife is the perfect fit for those who find an 8″ or 10″ chef’s knife to be too large. It’s just the right size for a compact home kitchen, and can still tackle almost any task!


  • 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.

    This thing is laser-sharp, and just the right size for many different kitchen tasks. Whether it’s dicing an onion, or slicing a flank steak, the size and dimensions of this knife are perfect. It’s expensive, and worth it. It’s a well-made knife that will still be in service generations from now.

    Well, we didn’t use the item. It was a gift to a budding young chef (age 12) in Texas. He served as my sous chef on vacation in a house with really crappy knives. Thus my idea for the gift. My wife and I have both the 8” and 6” chef knives and love them both: the weight, balance, shape, and feel in the hand. And they stay sharp. And they are lovely knives. We use them every day. We appreciate the tapered bolster. We just sent family in Iowa your paring knife. Last Christmas we sent four 6” chef knives to various family in Iowa and Missouri. I would like to get the paring knife, but my wife says: “NO MORE KNIVES.” For now, anyway. :)

  6. John D. (verified owner)

  7. Will Lawson (verified owner)

    Before purchasing this knife all the kitchen knives I’ve ever owned were store-bought, usually in some set that cost 50 for 6 knives. So I never owned what I would call a good quality knife before. Because of this I debated and deliberated for quite some time as to which knife, from what manufacturer I wanted to buy from, I was initially going to buy a knife from a well know (globally) manufacturer that was available in my state, until I saw Brad Leone comment on his signature knife sold here, unfortunately, it was unavailable but it didn’t take long for me to pick and purchase this knife and I have no regrets, this is an amazing knife and I cant recommend not just this knife but Lamson in particular!

  8. Robb E. (verified owner)

    This knife has quickly become a favorite in our kitchen. We often found ourselves reaching for shorter knives for smaller prep jobs in the kitchen. We wanted to know: How short can we go in a standard chef’s knife Let’s give this 6″ Lamson (a local-to-me, Massachusetts company) a try! The knife is gorgeous. The blade is razor sharp. Looking forward to learning about how well it will keep an edge, and how it take an edge, but I haven’t had to sharpen it yet. The steel is highly polished (no matte finish on this puppy). A couple of things to know: The curve / rocker is extreme on the short blade. That is taking some getting used to. Finally, the handle is beautiful, but a little slick with wet / greasy hands.

    I absolutely love my new knife. Well balanced in my hand and comfortable. Thank you!

  10. Mark B. (verified owner)

    Excellent. Ordered the 8’ as well.

  11. Adam H. (verified owner)

    I love this knife. It’s easy to clean, cuts everything the way I want, and is weighted great. My new favorite knife.

  12. Benjamin W. (verified owner)

    We purchased this knife as a replacement for a lost 6″ santoku which was always a bit of a ‘last resort’ small utility knife. This new 6″ chef knife has quickly become the most used, most sought-after one in the kitchen. It came razor-sharp and beautiful, and quicker than projected. Great to have a high-quality, locally-made piece of art like this helping us prepare meals!

    Great knife!!! Perfect weight and design
